As i'm not at work this week I thought i'd set myself the difficult task of a creative challenge each day, so whether it's baking a cake or making some Christmas decorations, i'm going to be blogging about it every day this week. Seven days, seven challenges.
Today I have made a cowl for my daughter. I've used Patons Big Fab yarn which is super chunky. I had started following the pattern on the yarn band yesterday, but wasn't happy with it, so began again this morning using my own pattern idea ...
Super Chunky Snuggle Cowl
You will need:-
- 1 (200g) ball of Patons Big Fab - I've used the 'Frost' colourway.
- 10mm needles, don't use ones that are too short.
- A tapestry needle with a large eye.
Cast on 26 stitches.
Rows 1 and 2 - Knit
Row 3 - Knit into each stitch but wrap the yarn around the needle twice when making the stitch.
Row 4 - Knit into each stitch, letting the 'extra' yarn loop from the previous row off the needle, this will make a row of long stitches.
Repeat these 4 rows until the yarn is almost used up, finishing with row 2.Cast off and sew the starting edge and cast off edge together being careful not create a bulky seam on the reverse of your cowl.
