Easy One Skein Cowl

I made this super easy cowl with one skein of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn in Denim Twist.  I knitted it on size U.S. 13 circular needles.

C.O. 80 sts

Rib knit the first five rows.  Knit 4, Purl 4 to the end of each row.

Just knit for the next 4 inches.

Knit the last five rows the same as the first five and bind off.

See?  I told ya it was super easy. :)

When you finish the cowl should be 30 inches around and 8 inches long.  A bit on the slouchy side and so warm and comfy!

Happy knitting!

Octopus Cowl

My latest creation: The Octopus Cowl!

This cowl was surprisingly easy to get done, I thought I would have a hard time when it came to the tentacles.  I knit the cowl part in the round on circular needles then knit the tentacles on dpns.

I used Wool-Ease Thick & quick yarn in claret.  It's super bulky weight and so warm and cozy!  I don't know why but I am really into octopuses right now.  Yes I said octopuses watch the video and don't judge me. Lol.
I Googled the plural for octopus and found that video... lol, ignorant slob, so funny. :p

But anyway, as I was saying, into octopuses... I'm going to try making an octopus coffee cozy too.  Also, I've been into making fabric appliques for t-shirts recently and I plan to make an octopus one as well.

By the way, Coffee says hi!

See ya later!
