Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • yarn over
  • bind off
  • Long tail/'Y' Cast on

Pattern Description:

Written pattern - US and metric

This is a fun and unique little cowl, a bit quirky with a cool 'trick' to making it all as ONE PIECE -NOT just with the loops made separate and sewn on...once you make one you will be so tickled by the trick you'll want to make more of them.
They go very quickly and are fun to knit.
I have done modifications of this pattern in dk weight on US 6 needles as necklaces and longer and bulkier too, ones with more twisted, knotted loops too (all to be seen in my Etsy shop LavishCraft and more here on craftsy's project pages too)...Have some fun of your own with this pattern - and I'd LOVE to see your versions.
