Circular Reasoning is worked in the round, beginning with a two colour stranded colourwork pattern and ending with alternating bands of stranded colourwork and slipped stitch texture. The ends are then grafted together to make a seamless double loop cowl. While the slipped stitch pattern adds a textural element, you can also do the entire scarf in stranded colourwork, in which case you will need 463 yds/423m of Dyed in the Wool and 926 yds/846m of Debauchery (or 463 yds/423m of sport weight yarn).
