Endless Loop by Jennifer Kent

Beyond the Pattern

I love scarves, especially those that I can wear year round. This scarf is knit flat, then joined into an oversized continuous loop. This makes it versatile enough to wear as a long easy cowl, or, if wrapped on itself multiple times, a shorter neck warmer. The openwork mesh lace stitch allows air to pass through and keeps the scarf from becoming too heavy when worn in warmer climates. I think it just may become my most favorite summer scarf!
