I have this cute coat that is solid black, I really like it but it needs some colour. So, off to the yarn store I went.  Apparently this is “pink” but this dye lot looks a lot more like coral.  I whipped this guy up rather quickly using the same pattern as my Two-Tone Cowl Infinity Scarf  and the same 8 mm needles. I used a 3 needle bind-off technique to connect the scarf. (A tutorial for the 3 needle bind off coming soon!)

I did a slip edge this time, it is a lot cleaner. I’ll likely use that on everything I knit now.

If you are making a infinity scarf I would also recommend adding a twist – it really helps your scarf lay flat. I love the twist!

Two-Tone Cowl Infinity Scarf

Two-Tone Cowl Infinity Scarf

Two Tone Cowl Infinity ScarfThis is my favourite scarf. It’s my everyday, it’s not that cold out scarf …and I MADE IT!

In this scarf I learnt the “knit 1 below” (k1b) stitch and I absolutely love the look of it. Even thought I’m knitting horizontal lines the k1b makes vertical lines in the knit. Essentially, you perform the same knit stitch as you would when performing the stocking stitch, but you do so into the loop below the knit on the needle. This was a perfect next step stitch to learn as a new knitter, it was simple and added to what I already knew.
