I’ve created this fun and easy scarf that is perfect for kids and adults alike.  This pattern calls for a super bulky yarn and the one I have chosen is a show stopper, and I mean red carpet quality show stopping.  The pattern is simply alternating between a knit and a purl row, so it works up pretty quick also.

Cowls & Infinity Scarves

Cowls and infinity scarves are not only perfect for the fall / winter transition – they are paramount in staying warm without completely undoing all the effort you put into controlling your hair.  Wearing one is like wearing an endless hug, and creating one for someone else, if pretty much on par with hero cookies.
