I love infinity scarves because they always keep my face warm during the winter. And the pattern on this scarf is beautiful! It truly reminds me of waves.

I love how this cowl mimics the look of swirling, rushing water. What a pretty design!

All my years of knitting and I have never made anything with a zigzag pattern but there is always a pattern to start with and this is the one. Not boring at all with the changes of color. It will be a very interesting scarf. I probably won't join the ends but will tie and drape it in different ways. Thank you.

At 13 inches wide and 52 inches long, this is a big scarf, big enough so you can double it or wear it how you like. Since you use two strands held together you could use this pattern as a stash buster for your light weight yarn. I know someone who loves big scarves like this so it would be perfect for her.

This is really different. I'm usually not a big fan of cowls because I'm short and it's too much fabric at my neck, but I think the waves on this one would cut down on that effect a bit.

Some cowl patterns are more interesting than others this one is stunning. Can't wait to wear it - but it will have to be after I finish the Christmas gift making sigh
