I suppose you could call it a long cowl. I can't decide if there's any difference between the two...

Anyway, for Christmas, my mom gave me several skeins of Bernat Mosaic in different colorways. I finally set about using it up. With "Optimistic", i made this infinity scarf. As i was knitting, i really looked at the colors. At first glance, it's kind of just rainbow-y.

 

But upon further inspection, i realized there is green, the color of... turtles. Blue, red, purple, orange. Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo.

I mean... am i right?

 

For anybody interested, here's how to make your own!

You'll need:
1 skein Bernat Mosaic in colorway Optimistic
Size US 9 40" circs

Cast on 187 stitches
K1, p1 until you are ready to bind off
Bind off in pattern

Just a note. You can definitely cast on an even number of stitches, if that's your kind of thing. But when you're knitting seed stitch in the round, if you have an even number of stitches, there will be an obvious "seam" of sorts where each round ends and begins. If that doesn't make sense, feel free too ask me any questions you may have.

Weave in ends. Wrap around your neck. Be a ninja... turtle.

You're right!  Very ninja turtle!  Nice use of color.  I'll bet this will be just the ticket come winter -- it will look GREAT with a black or dark colored coat!

It's beautiful!
I will keep this Infinity Scarf-Cowl in mind if/when I get over my utter hatred of knitting with seed stitch.

Thank you, everybody!

Jane, i know just what you mean. I used to hate seed stitch. I don't know what happened, but one day i just loved it. Possibly because i love the end results so much.

First post!  Along with the first project I made from this site.  I absolutely loved this pattern, so simple and elegant looking.  I have another one on the needles, and more yarn waiting to be given as a Christmas present.  Thanks for the pattern.



Sorry, I don't know how to post photos yet so I'm just posting the link to my personal photo storage page.

P.s.  I used Bernat Mosaic, in ambrosia.  I found the single skein for just $1.34 at Meijer a few weeks ago.

Oh, my gosh, that is so cool! I just looked on ravelry; are you Whimsical-M? You should post the picture you posted here on ravelry. I want to add it as a featured photo!

P.S. Once you've posted 10 times, you can post photos. But a mod may come in and change this one for you.

How many times can i write the word 'post'? Cheesy

No that isn't me.  I think I'm jansweeps??? I'm not really sure.  I'll see if I can figure out how to submit a photo on Ravelry so you can use it.  I know how additional photos really help sell a pattern (even if the pattern is free).  Btw, the daughter who received the scarf LOVES it!  So does everyone she runs into.

Well I tried but I don't think I uploaded them properly because I can see them listed in my projects, but not on your pattern site.  If you can see them or add them somehow, please feel free.  I uploaded the original photo you saw as well as the second scarf that I did just before it was finished.  The second one I used a red heart boutique yarn but I don't think it's as pretty as the Bernat mosaic.

It totally worked! Yay!

I see what you mean about the Red Heart yarn. Gorgeous colors, but i prefer the Mosaic, too.
