Infinity Scarf

Or cowl, or whatever else you want to call it. The second I saw Rachel of Maybe Matilda was doing a crochet along I knew I had to do it! When I saw it was a cowl/infinity scarf I was beyond thrilled. I had been wanting to make one, but just hadn't set aside the time, and I wasn't really sure it was for me. I must admit I'm not the best at figuring out what is going to work with my body type by just looking at it. I have to try it on. Then, I have to stare at myself in the mirror from several different angles for like ten minutes. I finally call my husband in to give me his opinion, or if he isn't there I take a picture and text it to him or my mom or sister. And stare at myself in the mirror some more while I wait for a response. Yeah, I am pretty much terrified of buyer's remorse. You should have seen me in the yarn aisle. I spent like 5 minutes staring at the yarn. I'm sure my poor sister-in-law was bored out of her mind, and I know her kids were! I wanted a neutral color so I could wear it with anything. So I chose a Charcoal. We used the Lion Brand Time Out Cowl pattern. I twisted the cowl before I connected the end so it would have a twist in it. So here is how it turned out....

I love how incredibly versatile this can be!

My husband was the camera man. It was a nasty day so we decided to just take pictures on the back porch. He felt a little awkward taking pictures of an adult on our back porch. Understandably so!

I have naturally wavy/curly hair. I love that when it starts snowing I can just pull this thing over my head and hopefully not have the crazy frizz going on!

The little dude wanted in on the action, too!


  1. Haha, I loved your description of outfit selection . . . so similar to mine, except when I ask my husband's opinion, it's usually so I can do the opposite because I don't trust his fashion sense ;-) Anyway, your cowl turned out so beautifully! I especially love how you're wearing it in the first picture, draped over your shoulders--that looks so elegant! You did a gorgeous job, and isn't it nice to know that it looks equally lovely on little boys? My son hasn't discovered mine yet, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time ;-) Thanks so much for participating! I love your cowl!

  2. Heeeeyyyyyy, I posed with my cowl on my head, too! :0) Did you know that cowl actually means "hooded garment"? I looked it up. LOL

    Don't stress on the yarn choice, the color you chose is gorgeous. Good job!

  3. I love your cowl. It looks fantastic. I chose a similar color. I love how you draped it in the first picture.
