I happened to be on Ravelry the other day and saw the Faded Glass Infinity Cowl was trending. With good reason; it’s gorgeous!
This design, by Sydney Gerzymisch, uses light fingering weight yarn with one main color and as many contrasting colors as you like. They used 14 on the sample, but you can use more or fewer depending on how much yarn you want to use and how long you want your loop to be.
The colors make a bit of a fade, which is explained in the pattern. The colorwork is charted, but it’s pretty easy. Because the project is a tube you don’t have to weave in all your ends (though you might want to anchor the new yarn in a couple of stitches as you go so the stitches around the color changes aren’t too loose.
You could of course knit this in a different yarn weight, too, if you wanted a bigger cowl. Whatever way you work it, this stained glass style pattern is sure to be eye-catching and fun to knit.
You can get the free pattern on Ravelry.
