Hello everybody! I must apologize on the delay on posts lately. I've been busy knitting and getting over a cold. But now I'm healthy again and to celebrate I thought I'd post up another knitting project.
This is a fun and simple pattern to knit. I knitted this cowl for my boyfriends mom for Christmas this past year. This pattern is written by http://www.heyjenrenee.com/. And is available on ravelry as a free pdf download here!
All you need is:
2 balls of heavy weight yarn (approx 153 yds each)
US 13 24 inch circular needle
All you need to know:
Long tail cast on
Join in circle
Knit & Purl (throwing) or Knit & Purl (continental)
How to add another ball of yarn
How to weave in the ends
Cast on 131 stitches using the long tail method
Join in the round and place a marker
Row 1: Knit 1, Purl 1 - repeat this for the entire row
Row 2: Purl 1, Knit 1 - repeat this for the entire row
The above is what creates a seed stitch. You will repeat row 1&2 until it's about 15 inches wide
Then bind off and weave in your ends!
