Long loopy cowls are great knitting projects for any season. They’re larger than hats or socks, so they usually require a little more knitting time (which is not at all a bad thing) but they’re still supremely portable while you’re knitting them. And then you have a great knitted accessory that can transcend seasons—worn long and unlooped, infinity scarf knitting patterns can dress up a summer tee; be worn looped and close to the neck, or provide an extra layer under a coat on cooler days.
In Knitscene Spring 2016, our featured designer Andrea Rangel designed a gorgeous infinity scarf knitting pattern using HiKoo Rylie (from Skacel). Knit flat in garter stitch and then grafted at the end, Andrea’s version features muted colors (natural and a light brown) to form the increasing chevron pattern. When I was working with Andrea to develop her collection, she specifically asked that we attempt to photograph her pieces with an outdoors-y, natural feel. Her collection was built around the idea of taking and wearing knit wear any where (download the issue to read the great profile, written by Fringe Association’s Karen Templer, encapsulating all of Andrea’s travels around the world), and this infinity scarf knitting pattern, I think, is one of the best examples from her four-piece collection.
