I just love a good infinity cowl, don’t you? They are quick to work up, and they make wonderful gifts.
I was playing around with a fun stitch combo when I made this cowl. What I love about it most is that it is easy, and it builds quickly. This cowl also sports that same nice little twist that my With a Twist Infinity Cowl has. It allows the cowl to lay nicely when wearing it.
My 6-year-old daughter, Tess, loved it so much that she claimed it for herself! I told her she could have it on the condition that she model it for me for photos. Although the sun was too bright for her sensitive eyes, she hung in there and kept her end of the bargain.
As shown in the photo, the Tess Cowl can be worn three ways: as a traditional cowl, over the shoulders, or as a hood. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn and a J hook for the child-sized cowl. It can easily be sized up, though. I made another using Red Heart Unforgettable yarn with a K hook. Here is one of my older daughters modeling it
As you can see, the Tess Cowl works up nicely in various types of worsted weight yarns.
