Very Easy Infinity Scarf Pattern

DSC_0606 sjaal beige los 2

It’s getting colder and because this is an old post of mine and so many people like it I had to put it on top again.

To make this cowl I used two skeins Ribbon Xl from Hoooked, which you can buy here. I love the ribbon XL because it’s made from recycled cotton and because it’s cotton it doesn’t itch and is not to warm, but feel free to use any other kind of material that matches knitting needles size 17

 Cast on 40 stitches en work in garter stitch, the width of the work has to measure aprox 16 inches. Than work in garter stitch till the work measures aprox 36 inches and cast of the stitches.
