Winter is my favorite time of year! I love the white snow, sled riding, and hot cocoa by the fire! Every night my family is snuggled up together (to keep warm) talking about our day and just spending quality time together.
Not only is it the perfect time of year for family but it’s also the perfect time to make cozy things with yarn! Which not gonna lie is most of the year for me! 🙂

When I am designing patterns like this and my one hour cowl I ALWAYS try to make them simple enough for everyone to enjoy so this one is no exception!
This Infinity Scarf is Worked in The Round!
I started the shimmering snow cowl by working in the round which is a great way to make a cowl because it works up smoothly and much faster! (In my opinion) I then proceeded to do a combination of single crochets and half double crochets to give it a nice texture.
The Om Opal colorway is what is the icing on the cake because it really makes it stand out because of the ombre effect of the yarn. You’ll love it! Promise.
