I’m secretly glad that the wintery weather is sticking around this year.. mainly because I can carry on creating thick, cosy & totally scrumptious winter wearables 🙂 So I thought I would create one more scarf before I have to start on the spring/ summer collection!
My Zig Zag Puff Stitch cowl is super super popular so I thought I would incorporate elements of that design in this one. I absolutely love the look of an alternating stitch – See my India Jumper sneak peak, it creates interesting texture and a bit of fun to your outfit.
This infinity cowl is super easy to work up with a 4 row pattern repeat. This finished scarf is just over 60″ long and about 6″ wide, but if you want an even longer or wider scarf, the pattern is easy to adapt. It wraps around my neck twice but also looks lovely draped over once.
The yarn I used is from the Women’s Institute range from HobbyCraft. They are £10 each and come in mahoosive 400g skeins, and although they are a bit of a pain to unravel , it works up a dream. I used under one skein meaning this scarf comes in at well under a tenner! You could even possibly make 2! Bargain! Some good alternatives are Caron Simply Soft or Red Heart Soft.
