It’s safe to say this cowl has been my obsession since this picture was first released. It looks so warm and chunky and the texture is just gorgeous. I was dying to make one myself but as I just started knitting a few weeks ago I had no idea how manageable this would be.
The verdict? It’s so easy. Once again my local knit shop was the place to go, and the owner there took one look at the picture and grabbed the needles and yarn that would work, and told me what to do. In less that a day, I had created this gorgeous scarf.
The pattern is simple. I used US size 36 needles, 4 strands at a time of cascades eco yarn.
If you have a shorter neck or don’t want it super chunky, I’d suggest trying 2 or 3 strands at a time. Then you can cast on 12-15 stitches, depending on how wide you want it, and just keep knitting in rows back and forth until it’s long enough to loop over twice. Then sew the ends together to make a big infinity scarf.
And if you want to wear it a more modern way – this works too.
