How to Knit an Infinity Scarf + 9 Fashionable Cowl Knitting Patterns

"Looks like a nice project, however the patterns from this website that are featured are frequently missing so much essential information, that some of them are useless. The website for the yarn has to be translated and the translation to english is not great, so proves to be more than a little frustrating."
"There is no "book" you must click on the link to see the pattern on the page it links to. After you get to the page, you need to scroll down about 1/3 of the page to find the written pattern there. Hope this helps, happy knitting."
"Sorry, I don't know of a video for that stitch pattern. I did make this project about 10 or so years ago and I remember that it did not really look like the picture until it was completed, while it was on the needles it looked like it wasn't lining up. Is it possible that is what is happening with you?"
"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"

I made this in black and I love how it turned out! Nice and thick and cozy, with a unique but not overwhelming pattern. Recommend it!

This is a really nice cowl pattern to make because you can style the cowl in different ways. The pattern issue noted below seems to have been corrected above. Since the cowl is made with 2 strands of yarn held together it should come out nice and comfy soft. Pinned!

Thank you to user Ealizabethane 1862 886, as well for letting us know that the pattern that was pasted here on AllFreeKnitting is incorrect! This is why I wish AllFreeKnitting would just link to Red Heart's website for these patterns like they do with the all the other patterns they put on their site. The pattern IS called Candi's Checked Cowl and the link to the pattern on RedHeart's site is http//www.redheart.com/free-patterns/candi's-check == ed-cowl.

There is a mistake in the pattern as it is written here. Where it says on here to Work in Garter stitch (knit every round) for 3 rounds. This is not correct, garter stitch in the round is stocking stitch on straight needles, knit 1 round, purl 1 round, knit 1 round are the correct instructions. I checked the Red Heart website, this project is called Candi's checkered cowl and the instructions are correct there, I think this needs to be updated. I've made 9 of these for gifts and found the issue last year, but this year I gave the pattern to my neighbour and forget to tell her about the mistake, she just brought hers to me in tears because it is all curled at the edges and its taken her the whole summer to make and now she has to start over. Hope this helps someone besides her, happy knitting.
