Darn Knit Stripe It!

As you may already know, I’m already thinking about my own holiday gifts (I know. it’s sweltering out there, but I’m determined to get ahead of the curve this year). I really love this yarn, Urth Uneek Worsted, and I found this extremely simple cowl designed with it. It’s so easy a beginner can do it, and it only takes 1 skein and 1 pair of needles to make it –  I’m thinking perfect last minute cottage project.

I encourage you to take a look at the finished projects to see how different colours knit up – I guarantee you’ll fall in love with at least one of the colourways. To get an idea about how the different colourways knit up you can take a look at the fingering weight version of the same yarn.

Materials

Shop Online Button Turquoise 250w

Notes

  • I just finished making this cowl myself (I’ll photograph that pronto, promise) and it fits casual and loose. If you want something more fitted you should omit some stitches.
  • Superwash yarn tends to loosen up after being washed. If you like your cowls on the drapy side, stick with the prescribed 4.5mm/US7 needles. If you like the fabric a bit more firm, go down to a 4mm/US6.
