This easy project was a fun way to play with the loftiness of Cumulus, and introduced me to a technique I hadn’t tried before. Knit entirely in garter stitch, the rows of chunky “slipped” stitches are created at the end. How? Carefully dropped stitches are unraveled, then chained back together up the length of the piece before binding off. Buttons are then attached to hold the cowl in place. Or if you don’t like sewing on buttons (like myself) you can always use a shawl pin instead.
Size: One size.
Gauge: 15 stitches to 4″ on size US 8 knitting needles in garter stitch after blocking.
Yardage: 1 skein Juniper Moon Farm Cumulus Yarn
