KELSO Scarf or Cowl

Kelso Infinity Scarf / Cowl

Kelso Scarf

These are made using 2 strands of DK (8ply) yarn knitted together.

The stitch (Cane Stitch) looks the same on both sides.

I like learning new stitches but the fact that there is a 3row repeat meant that I found it difficult to know where I was for the first few pattern repeats. I am more used to a ‘right’ side and a ‘wrong’ side. However, I soon got into the stitch! It gives a lovely open fabric which is perfect for this design.

    1. Glad you like this Tammy :) I used two different blues (one pale blue & one darker blue) knitted together. It has such a pretty effect. :)
