I am a hand knitter, crocheter, machine knitter, and have recently begun using a circular sock machine (csm). I manufacture some hard-to find knitting accessories such as the multiple yarn twister/winder, machine knitters GARTER BARS, mini garter bars, and needle stoppers. I also write and sell CUT-SEW-FELT Patterns using recycled sweaters, as well as hand-knitting & crochet patterns.
I LOVE to hand knit most of all. Easy projects are my game as we travel quite a bit and I love to knit no-brainers. oh yeah, and as you can see by my patterns.....I am the slipper Queen!

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.
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.
