"As seen in Knotions October 2018! Kenna is a striped infinity scarf intended to be double- or even triple-wrapped to keep you cozy and warm all winter long. Adaptable to any width or length you desire, this scarf is a simple project for any knitter and is a great introduction to the provisional cast on and kitchener bind off for novices. This pattern also works well for mini skein packs or as a stash-buster. The size and color possibilities are endless! Size Finished Size: 12 inch circumference and about 8 feet long (12.25 by 244 cm) before joining. It will be about 4 feet long after you fold it over and bind off. This pattern is adjustable to make it longer or shorter by adding or removing the number of repeats for each section. You can also make it wider by casting on more stitches. Please note, any alterations will affect the yardage required for the pattern. Yarn Anzula Cloud (80% Superwash Merino/10% Cashmere/10% Nylon; 575 yards/100 grams): Colorway (MC): Gravity, 1 skein Frabjous Fibers Wonderland Yarns, Cheshire Cat Mini Skein Pack (100% Superwash Merino Wool; 640 yards/141 grams, 28g/128yds in each mini skein).

Instructions

PATTERN NOTES This pattern is worked in the round and the ends are joined together using the kitchener bind off. While we have included instructions for each of the five sections in our yarn, this is actually a very easy pattern with just 2 round stripes. You could easily stash-bust to make this pattern or use up all of your yarn (it will impact the overall length if you have more/less yarn than our sample but it will still be a beautiful cowl). COWL INSTRUCTIONS Using the provisional cast on, cast on 80 stitches with waste yarn SECTION 1 Rnd 1: With MC, k in every stitch across. Join in the round and add a stitch marker Rnd 2: With MC, k all stitches Rnd 3: With CC1, k all stitches From this point forward, twist your strands on the inside of the cowl after each row. This will keep a gap from forming when you change colors. Make sure you do this on every row going forward, not just this section! Rnd 4: With CC1, k all stitches Repeat rnds 1-4 (ignoring the “Join in the round and add a stitch marker” note, that only needed to happen once) 43 more times (total of 44 stripes each of MC and CC1) SECTION 2 Rnds 177-178: With MC, k in every stitch across Rnds 179-180: With CC2, k in every stitch across Repeat rounds 177-180 43 more times (total of 44 stripes of each color) SECTION 3 Rnds 353-354: With MC, k in every stitch across Rnds 355-356: With CC3, k in every stitch across Repeat rounds 43 more times (total of 44 stripes of each color) SECTION 4 Rnds 529-530: With MC, k in every stitch across Rnds 531-532: With CC4, k in every stitch across Repeat rounds 43 more times (total of 44 stripes of each color) SECTION 5 Rnds 705-706: With MC, k in every stitch across Rnds 707-708: With CC5, k in every stitch across Repeat rounds 43 more times (total of 44 stripes of each color) Cut both colors, leaving at least a 30” tail of color CC5 and at least 10” tail of color MC (It’s better to have more tail than you need for this bind off than not enough!) FINISHING Weave in your end of MC. Remove your provisional cast on starting with the cast on spot, placing all live stitches onto your extra pair of circular needles or your double points. Line up both sets of needles, making sure the cowl isn’t twisted and is folded flat and evenly. Use the kitchener stitch seal the edges together to make it a complete cylinder (see our tutorial on the Kitchener Stitch). Weave in your last end and lightly block.
