just finished making this. looks nice, very thick. i couldn't find the 15mm needles so i used 12.5, the biggest i could find. my scarf is a little stiff, but wondering if it because of my needle size.
This looks fab in Rowan All seasons cotton ( 5 balls) . Not cheap but great result.
Because I didn't have time to run out & buy new yarn last weekend, I used 3 different colors of some leftover cotton yarn to make this scarf. It turned out very nicely. Have since bought some chunky wool blend yarn to make another scarf. I love this pattern!
This would look good in merino maybe left over odd balls of varying colours, can't wait to try it!
I used 5 balls of cream rowan all seasons cotton ( it's double knitting) and did this in 2 hours no probs - love the result and am going to try with 5 balls of any double knitting wool and make another!
This yarn is only available in the UK, Is there an equivalent yarn for purchase in the US?
Stylecraft Twirl Dk is a low price point acrylic yarn (but stylecraft make quite nice acyrlic yarns) Details on Yarndex here http://www.yarndex.com/yarn.cfm?yarn_id=6774. It's a standard DK and with average tension you'd use a 4mm needle. I suspect you could use any similar weight yarn. As it is a cowl, a slight change to gauge shouldn't cause a problem.At the moment I am trying to work out if I could use a super bulky yarn in my stash for this pattern but think it mightn't be thick enough!
Maybe combine a thin yarn with your super bulky to make it thicker?
