This cozy, oversized infinity scarf is as wonderful to wear as it is to knit! It's the perfect knitting project that is just a little involved, but not so much so that you can't enjoy a good movie while knitting it.
The pattern stitch is a nicely textured stitch with wavy blocks of Garter st alternating with subtle open lace. Both sides of the pattern look similar, making it work well with the Mobius twist of the scarf.
Once you get the hang of the pattern stitch, you'll be knitting along quickly. The size 13 needles with the bulky merino wool blend yarn produce a slightly looser gauge that ensures a soft, cuddly result.
Wear it scrunched around your neck in many different ways. Pull it over your shoulders with the twist in front for shoulder-warming action, or pull it over your head like an extended hood. You'll find it to be a very chic and versatile accessory!
