Infinitely Striped Rib & Garter Cowl

From the blogger: "This is a great stash buster. I used a dark purple/black yarn left over from something. I knew it wouldn't be enough on its own, so I added in a stripe pattern with another leftover yarn that had even less. The yarns need to be the same (or similar) weight and colors that you think coordinate together. It's also a good idea for the yarns to have the same care requirements. I'm pretty sure the yarns I used are synthetic or partly synthetic."


Knitting Needle Size7 or 4.5 mm

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Materials List

  • One skein or less of main color
  • Yarn scraps of compatible yarn(s)
  • Needles size 7 (or adjust for desired gage and yarn size)

Note: If you have enough yarn (I didn’t), you can make this longer to leave as a scarf. My design would have included a set of 16 rows of the pattern using color B on both ends of the scarf and then possibly fringe.


  1. Using Color A (main color): cast on 20 stitches

  2. Row 1: k across (last stitch knit to back)

  3. Row 2: slip 1; k across (last stitch knit to back)

  4. Row 3: slip 1; *p2 k2* last stitch knit to back

  5. Row 4: slip 1; *kp p2*; st stitch knit to back and repeat 3 more times (for four sets) to row 16

    Note: You can do the entire thing in just one color, or adjust when you add in the new color.

  6. Switch to Color B (accent color) and bring other color yarn up alongside it as you go

  7. Rows 17-20: same as rows 1-4

  8. Switch to Color A and bring the other color yarn up alongside as you go

  9. Rows 21-24: same as rows 1-4

  10. Switch to Color B (accent color) and bring the other color yarn up alongside as you go

  11. Rows 25-28: same as rows 1-4

  12. Switch to Color A and bring the other color yarn up alongside as you go

  13. Repeat rows 1-28 as many times as desired

  14. After a row 28 pattern, switch to Color A

  15. Knit and bind off loosely

  16. Sew the ends together to form a circle with no twist

  17. Weave in the ends

I've asked the designer for clarification on the "kp" abbreviation on row 4, I suspect it may be a typo, but when we use so many abbreviations in knitting, I don't want to presume anything.
