Knitting Pattern,  Scarf/Cowl

Smoke & Water

Guys, I am so excited to share this project with you! The “Smoke & Water” cowl features two lacework patterns merged into one amazing infinity scarf. The pattern came alive at the cabin. I wanted a cozy scarf I could wear out on the boat on brisk mornings and also around the campfire. The lacework keeps the scarf light enough to wear during late summer/early fall. I love it so much I may wear it year round! The first lacework (on the edges) is reminiscent of rushing water. The inner lacework is a calmer water with a twisting smoke ring down the middle. It can be worn single or double wrapped, both showcasing the pattern beautifully!

Enjoy! Happy cabin days! I hope you share many special memories with friends and family at the lake and around a bonfire!
