We all have that one skein of sock yarn that we got on a yarn crawl, giveaway, or just because it had to come home with us. These precious skeins are too beautiful to be hidden in a pair of shoes, and deserve a little spotlight. This simple accessory can be knit either as a cowl or an infinity scarf with just one skein of that very special sock yarn. The slipped stitches help break up pooling so each color has room to shine.
The sample shown is knit with one skein of hand dyed sock yarn, but this pattern is customizable and has been written for a variety of weights, because hand painted yarns come in different sizes!
