Yoli Loop cover | The Knitting Vortex

My gift to you on December 24, this pattern is free with the code HOLIDAY until midnight on Christmas Eve, US Eastern time. Thank you for a wonderful year, and wishing you joy and peace.

Diagonal mesh and simple garter edges run the length of this long and narrow infinity loop. Yoli Loop begins with a provisional cast on and is worked in one piece to the end, then grafted. Wear it looped as many times as you like; the reversible stitch pattern looks great from both sides. Easily customizable in length and width, the Yoli Loop can be adapted to any amount of yardage.

Techniques & Skills Used: provisional CO, knit, easy lace, grafting; this pattern includes a link to my grafting tutorials.
Size: 92” circumference and 4.5” width; customizable for varying amounts of yardage, see Designer’s Notes.
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Silky Merino (51% silk, 49% merino wool, 150 yards); 2 skeins, shown in Green Grey. The sample used all 300 yards.
Other Materials: US 7 (4.5mm) needle, or size to match gauge; Stitch markers (2); Scrap yarn for provisional CO; Yarn needle.
Gauge: 16 st and 32 rows in diagonal mesh pattern, after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished loop, and different yardage requirements.
