A squidley little cowl! Leggy in the front for fashion and pointed in the back to add a little warmth to the back of your neck. This is a very fast knit. It is only 29 rows! I made mine in an evening watching TV. You will use 2 strands of sock yarn held together throughout. You can be creative with color by using 2 different sock yarns or use the same one doubled for a solid look. I prefer yarn with a little drape to it that perhaps has rayon or cotton in it. Such a small amount of sock yarn is needed that you may even be able to use leftovers! Knit with a size 8, 24" circular needle makes it easy to handle knitting in the round. Gauge is not terribly important for this pattern, I suggest achieving a gauge of somewhere between 3 - 4 sts per inch. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit/Purl Long-tail cast on (video ref is noted) Backward Loop cast on (video ref is noted) Yarn over KFB - Knit in front and back of stitch Binding off GAUGE 3- 4 sts per inch. Gauge is not terribly important however I would not go more than 4 sts per inch or it will be tight on your circular needle. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One size fits all PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Any Sock yarn (2 of them, you will hold double). You may also use worsted weight yarn as long as you stay in the gauge range.

Supplies Needed

  • A very small amount of yarn is used, I use 2 different sock yarns., Approx. 85 yds each that are held together. Or, you can use worsted weight yarn as well.
  • 1 stitch marker to mark the beginning/end of your round.
  • U.S. size 8 (5mm) Circular Knitting Needle that is 24" in length.
