The Buttermilk Cowl is an infinity scarf worked in the round and packed with small but mighty cables plus a generous helping of seed stitch for maximum texture and squishiness. Each row of the pattern repeat is easy to memorize, giving you a visually complex surface texture with that’s a breeze to knit.
This pattern is for you if… You are an unabashed lover of 2×2 cables, you can’t get enough of seed stitch, and the thought of combining the two leaves you breathless.
Move along if… Lots and lots of cables are not your idea of a good time.
This pattern matches the Buttermilk Toque.
