A Glacial Pace
This completely reversible infinity scarf/cowl was designed for my good friend Kathy to take on her Alaskan Cruise.
So often with long cowls that have a true right side and wrong side, when you wrap them twice round your neck, a good portion of the wrong side winds up on the outside. “A Glacial Pace" is a truly reversible cowl that looks equally nice when worn as an infinity scarf, or when worn as a cowl, wrapped around twice for warmth.
And, despite its name, this cowl works up very quickly, using only 200 yards of worsted or aran weight yarn. The slightly loose gauge produces a cowl with nice drape that is warm, but not bulky or uncomfortable, even when doubled up.
The green sample was photographed after blocking - this will flatten the texture of the stitch pattern somewhat. The pink sample was photographed before blocking. Unblocked, the cowl will retain more texture.
