As you may have seen last week I was coveting cowls and this weekend I discovered the joy of knitting with super chunky wool, the joy being that you can finish a project in an afternoon.
I got this pattern from Ravelry, a free pattern from Jane Richmond it’s fantastic and really easy but I altered it slightly. She recommends using a 15mm circular needle, clearly I haven’t got one of these and I wasn’t going to buy one for one project so I used 12mm straight needles and just sewed it together rather than knitting in the round (which I hate anyway).
I also knitted it a little wider than recommended, I had one and a half skeins of the wool (cygnet ‘seriously chunky’ which was only £1.99 a ball – a bargain to make) so I just kept knitting until it was all gone.
It’s so cosy and warm, I love it!
I’m going to buy the crochet pattern too and have a go at that. It’s going to be a cowly winter.
