We've had lots of fun with this giant cowl. It's is a free pattern on Ravelry - basically you're casting 131 or so stitches onto a size 11 circular needle and working it in the round in seed stitch until it's about 18" deep. Ginni taught her granddaughter and daughter-in-law to knit over the holiday, and here they are wearing them.
Ginni knit this one for the shop, but I've worn every day this week. It really does keep you nice an warm - you don't notice how warm until you take it off! Two skeins of Ushya and a size 11 needle.
Mary whipped this one up using Drift - she made it the full width as directed in the pattern. It' super luxurious, and I managed to wear it several times last week.
Nicole knit one in Noro Kogarashi. She made it a bit narrower than the pattern calls for so that it wouldn't be so bunchy around her neck. It looks great doubled
or worn long and scarf-like.
If you're interested in knitting one of these for yourself, join us Thursday afternoons at either shop. We'll be working on this project for the next couple of weeks. It's fun and fast and chic!
