Yay for FREE patterns! I’m happy to share the Cosmos Infinity Scarf with you! If you’d like to help support my work and have a copy for keeps you’ll find an ad-free printable PDF here! I’ve also bundled the Cosmos Collection so you can find both patterns at a 25% DISCOUNT HERE! Now for the backstory behind how this scarf came to be!
A few fall/winters ago I came up with the coordinating pattern, the Cosmos Beanie, and I had full intentions of a quick turnaround to release the scarf. Long story short, the beanie was an obvious FLOP. I went through a series of flops. My first blog failed, I wasn’t making any money besides the occasional commission, my Etsy was a desert, and I was on a fast track to throwing in my maker towel… again. I took a LONG break from designing to focus on testing patterns for my maker homies and reestablish my self-confidence as a fiber artist. Now that we covered the lows that made me out of the way; let’s fast forward to October 2020.

Ok, so I know I said we covered the lows, but October was an entirely new set of obstacles that challenged everything I thought I had overcome from the past two years of internal turmoil, and external failures. Was I successfully landing features? Yes. Was I successfully selling patterns across multiple platforms? Yes. Was I in print? Yes. Everything seemed great, but the pressure to maintain was starting weigh me down. October taught me that no matter where I am in my pursuit of happiness, I must remember that this is a journey, and everyone has to take a break at some point.
October was the tipping point I needed to not only love myself and remember how far I’ve come, but to also restructure how I intended on moving forward. And here we are. If you take anything away from this post, besides the pattern, please remember that no matter what YOU always matter first! The work can’t get done if you’re not valuing the small wins or your wellness in all the in between. Also, flops and failures are not the end of your story. Use them as moments to grow through your experiences so when you’re ready, you may productively move forward. Now for the pattern you’ve all been so patiently waiting for; the Cosmos Infinity Scarf *and the crowd goes wild*!
Cosmos Infinity Scarf
Make a major fashion statement while beating the Winter chill! This super bulky infinity scarf is lusciously squishy, warm, and has an endless amount of texture. The Cosmos Infinity Scarf was designed to be paired with the Cosmos Beanie or worn on its own.
This scarf is worked flat in a modified Even Moss Stitch which creates a ribbed texture. To modify the Even Moss Stitch and establish the ribbing, following Row 1, only work in the back loops of stitches from prior rows. Add length by adding rows. Adding rows will add ease to the fit of the scarf when doubled up. Remember to account for extra yardage if modifications to the length desired prior to seaming.

Yarn: Weight 6 • 270yds
Lion Brand, Wool-Ease Thick & Quick
