I got to thinking how nice it would be to have a pattern that is interesting to knit and pretty to wear but doesn’t involve counting, so I came up with the Knit and Chat Infinity Scarf and Cowl. It’s knit in the round, and each round just involves doing one stitch or stitch combination, so there’s no need to count after you cast on. It’s appropriate for an advanced beginner. You can choose the infinity scarf or the cowl or you can make one of each.
The pattern uses a suri alpaca lace like my Suri Lace Cloud and a soft sock-weight yarn like my own So Silky Sock or Sock Perfection. Most of the time, the two yarn bases are held together, but for some rounds you just use one or the other.
- US Size 6 / 4 mm circular needles that are 36 inches in length for the infinity scarf OR US Size 6 / 4 mm circular needles that are 24 inches in length for the cowl
- One stitch marker
You'll need one skein of a suri lace yarn like Suri Lace Cloud AND one skein of a soft sock-weight yarn like So Silky Sock, Sock Perfection, or Diamond Sock. Keep in mind that the Suri yarn will be the one that shows up most in the finished project and choose your colorways with that in mind.
