Just in Time for Autumn

In the peak of summer, there's really only one thing I'm good at doing and that's complaining about not having air conditioning :). But this August, despite sweating at the sight of the giant pile of bulky wool yarn this project required, I managed to finish knitting a cozy infinity scarf just in time for the chillier fall weather.

This is a pattern by Jared Flood, called Cinder, that uses a reverse cable design. Unlike traditional cables that look whack on the wrong side, reversible cables look great on both sides! The pattern is for a scarf but I used a provisional cast-on and grafted the two ends together using kitchner stitch to make it an infinity scarf.

Here I am trying too hard to look casual while modeling the final project :).

I used Cascade Yarns 128 Superwash in colorway 875 Feather Grey. This merino wool yarn knits up really soft and has the bonus of being washable but it can be a bit annoying to knit with as the twisted fiber is easy to split.

After my awkward photo shoot, I packaged this scarf up and sent it off to my swap partner! I hope some of the heat of summer was stitched into the fibers so it will keep her warm through fall and winter :).
