The other week I showed you my green monster hat and how I paired it with a quick and easy seed stitch cowl. I prefer infinity scarves and cowls to long scarves. I am less likely to lose them if they’re tied around my neck. I also knew I didn’t want to spend a ton of time or money on this project so I popped on over to Joann’s and picked up a skein of Lion Brand Hometown Solids in this really vivid cobalt blue call Ft. Worth Blue. And here’s how simple this is (I whipped this up in about 2 hours while clearing out my DVR).
- Needles: Size 19 circulars – I went big but if you want a tighter gauge go smaller or a looser gauge go even bigger.
- Cast on: 50 stitches.
- Seed stitch: Knit 1, purl 1 all the way around. Next row you purl the knits and knit the purls and keep going in that manner until it’s the length you want.
I used almost the entire ball of yarn and then left myself enough yarn to bind off! And that’s it. Seriously it took me about 2 hours and I was done. If you’re short on time and want a quick gift to knit I highly suggest this cowl. It’s inexpensive, the yarn is machine washer and dryer friendly and the yarn comes in a billion colors! And if you’re wondering what kind of gloves/mittens I’ve paired with this combo…
I’ve got a favorite fingerless mitts pattern that I whipped up with the yarn I had leftover. I’ll talk about that soon!
