Infinity cowl in three colors

 I had an idea about making myself an infinity cowl for some time now. I knew I’d wanted it to be in three complemented colors but I was unsure of what stitch to use. Lately, I was reviewing nonstop stitches in my mind but nothing looked suitable enough. Then, last Saturday I went to a yarn shop to get some new yarn. I was chatting with the shop owner when a lady came in. She was looking for yarn to make a hat for her grandson. She took out her mobile and showed us a picture of the hat that the kid wanted. She asked for help because she couldn’t recognize the stitch used in that hat. The picture was not very good and it took us some time but finally we came to the conclusion that it is the moss stitch. We chatted a bit more and then I left. Later that day, I was driving around the city and I was debating with myself, looking for a solution about my cowl dilemma. Suddenly, out of nowhere, the solution came! The moss stitch would make a perfect cowl with the chunky yarn I had in mind. So there it is – my chunky blue cowl is ready! It is a really easy project which you can finish in a weekend. Once you set the pattern it doesn’t require a lot of counting.

Now it’s time to move on something bigger – let’s make a buttoned pillow case.
