Make this lovely inifnity pattern scarf with just two stitches. It goes around twice and keeps out the chilliest wind.
- 3 balls Rowan baby alpaca (see note)
- 6mm circular needles, 100cm long
NOTE The alternating rows of knit and purl produce a thick fabric, and the rows curl back and forth. Even though the weight is only double knit, the finished scarf is pleasingly warm. Any DK weight yarn may be used, but the alpaca gives a super soft result.
