Infinity Scarf Cowl Knitting Pattern : Rainy Day

Free super bulky infinity scarf cowl knitting pattern. This is a beginner scarf knitting pattern. A fun twist on the seed stitch.
This stitch with this yarn… all the texture and squishiness!!! This super bulky yarn is lightweight. It has beautiful stitch definition and it’s light and airy, so you have a quick, super bulky project that’s squishy and cozy. This is one of my new favorite yarns! {This is not an ad. I’m just lovin’ this yarn! #notsponsored.}


This is a great pattern to pick up and put down, once you see the pattern it’s easy to follow.
