Contrasting textures is one of the many things that make for interesting knitwear designs.
This infinity scarf is all about that and will add a heavy dose of modern style to your wardrobe. Lush, dense brioche ribbing is unexpectantly matched with a unique, textured lace stitch pattern. A little bit of the brioche ribbing is mixed into the lace pattern to tie the disparate stitch patterns together.
Begin with the more complicated (but not difficult!) lace pattern when you have time to pay attention to your rows, then the second half will be a breeze of easy (farily mindless, great to TV time!) brioche ribbing. This scarf is knit in a nice merino wool blend with enough loft to give the scarf some structure, plus wonderful stitch definition and softness. IMHO, a perfect project with perfect results!

Maybe I'm just not advanced enough for this, but I finally had to take this to the local yarn shop for help getting started. The problem was the set up row is labeled row 1, but then I'd try to go to row 2 and then I noticed that one row 1 didn't look like the other row 1...anyway. Once I got everything figured out and got started, it was very straight forward and I was able to see what was going on and even go back and figure out mistakes easily enough. It's very pretty and so perfect for the person who will get it. I'm even excited to make one for me. I learned a lot from working with this pattern and I'm excited to see what other patterns I'd like to try.

This is a lovely cowl and the pattern was well written and very easy to follow.I will certainly buy more patterns and can't wait to start the other patterns patterns I've purchased.

My grandaughter chose the patter. I enjoyed knitting it just enough challenge for this old lady! Worked up easily and looks terrific!

This infinity scarf is so fun to knit. I've never done any brioche stitches before, and it is easy to do and creates an awesome texture. Actually finished one, and immediately began another. This is definitely not for the beginner, but any intermediate knitter will enjoy the pattern.

My daughter-in-law asked me if I would make her an eternity scarf, and I found the perfect pattern, the Day and Night Eternity Scarf. I have finished the lace half and have to say that it worked up beautifully. I am on the easy half now and can't wait to complete it and wrap it for her for Christmas. I used Cascade Eco Duo undyed alpaca and merino, so soft and colorations are great with this pattern. Thank you for a beautiful, well written pattern.

It looks great in the pictures, but it is like magic when the pattern emerges as I knit. I have done several lace pattern repeats and it is going faster and faster. It is hard to put down and my daughter is already hinting that I can give it to her if I want...so I think I will be making more than one of these!
