ASKAI infinity Loop Scarf designed by Ruth Marshall

Based on “Askai” the male snow leopard, inhabitant of Central Park Zoo, New York City.

In 2014 I transcribed Askai’s pelt into a life size hand knitted textile. On a cool day Askai can be seen wrapping his tail around himself to keep warm. His tail markings are so luscious I thought, “Why can’t we humans also keep the chill away with knit version of his tail?” Knitted lengthwise the ends are grafted together to form an infinity loop with an invisible seam.

Skill level: Intermediate, experience with color knitting.

Size: For one loop, (34″ x 4″ / 86cm x 10cm.) Repeat chart for two loops, (64″ x 4″ / 162cm x 10cm.) Relaxed curled width, (2″ / 5cm.)

Materials needed: Size 8 (5mm) needles. Suggested yarn: Lion Brand Wool Ease, one ball each of three colors will create multiple scarfs.

Downloadable PDF pattern chart and information flyer. Price = $10

    Dear Ruth

    Do you sell your Leadbetter possum kits in the UK? I’d love to get one if possible.
