The Maid of the Mist is a cozy infinity cowl made in a squishy dk weight yarn. This design features reversible eyelet and lace rib stitch patterns that look equally good on the right and wrong side of the cowl.

This cowl is knit sideways making the pattern easily customisable. The yardage and dimensions are given for the Infinity loop, to wear it in a double wrap style to keep you warm on a chilly day.

The cast-on edge and the last row of a knitted piece are joined together with the Kitchener Stitch to form a loop. To add more interest to this accessory, it can be made in two or multiple colours.

14 sts x 24 rows to 10cm/4in square over Garter Eyelet stitch on 5.5 mm/US #9 needles, lightly blocked. Adjust needle size if necessary.
