Graphic chevron medallions occasionally interrupted by horizontal stripes create an eye- catching infinity cowl that will elevate any outfit. Maurits is worked in the round from a provisional cast-on and grafted to join the ends, so there’s no wrong side or seam to conceal. The pattern is given for two lengths, a 45” version requiring two skeins of Loft in each color and a generous 59” loop requiring three skeins of each. The hypnotic colorwork motif is predictable and doesn’t require floats longer than four stitches, making this an excellent project for perfecting your stranding technique. Choose your favorite high-contrast combination for modern impact—we used Fossil and Button Jar—or opt for the subtle spice of two rich autumn hues like Homemade Jam and Pumpernickel. You could even select a gradient of contrast colors and work a segment of the cowl in each.
