A Day In The City

Slipped stitches stand off a background of garter stitch. This design is a great choice for hand dyes since it’s simple enough to let the yarn shine.

The larger circumferences are meant to be worn doubled around the neck (infinity scarf). The smallest circumference will fit as a traditional cowl (around the neck once).

This piece is knit flat and seamed. You may choose to use a provisional cast on and join with a kitchener stitch, or cast on using your favorite method and sew together.
