I’ve had two skeins of this soft Misti Alpaca Chunky in my stash for almost three years. I always wanted to do something really fun with it, but it had to be just right for the yarn, which is so soft and squishy, its just heavenly. I decided that a cowl was probably the best way to go due to my limited yardage.
I couldn’t decide on a pattern. I’ve had an idea floating around in my head for quite a while of the perfect infinity scarf/cowl. I wasn’t really sure how to go about making what I was envisioning, so I searched around for a pattern. Nothing was quite right.
So I decided to just go for it- I cast on 36 sts on size US 15 needles and started knitting a tube. I knit through both skeins and then grafted the ends together…. and viola!
The perfect infinity cowl was born!
