This cowl was designed to use up every inch of a bulky, handspun yarn. It's written to use up a very small amount of handspun yarn - I used 22 yards for the small version, and approximately 40 yards were used for the large version. Small version is approximately 3" high; large version is approximately 5" high. Large version was added in March, 2014. It is knitted flat & uses a very easy 2 row stitch pattern, and then whipstitched together. It should take you about an hour to make, so it's perfect for both stash busting & gift giving! Thank you to slippergirl, honeystalks, & olive2 for test knitting, pamelascrafts for proofreading, & the Testing Pool group on Ravelry. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl GAUGE 10 sts=4" SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 3" or 5" high, by desired circumference SUGGESTED YARN 40 yards of Bulky weight

My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item. I'm a 30 something adult living in MA. I’m married, have a wonderful cat named Wedgie, & I work full time. I also teach knitting & crocheting at my local Michael's & squeeze in designing as many hours as I can a week. I do love to hear from everyone, but please remember that I am busy, just like you, & will reply as soon as I can. All of my patterns use USA terms & abbreviations. I try to layout my patterns as simply as possible to save money for people printing at home. My patterns are as short as possible, usually with only one photo on the first page, which you can easily skip printing to save ink. .
