DoubleCowl2pdfbuttonWhat started out as 5 mismatched leftover balls of hand painted yarn turned into my favorite neck warmer!  The color changes combined with the slipped stitches make the colors sing.  It is totally worth weaving in the ends to get the color variations.

This did require a good wet blocking to discourage curling and it still wants to curl.  If you are interested in making one for yourself, here’s the spill:

Skill Level– Beginner
Finished Measurements– 43″ around and 5.75″ tall
Yarn– 250 yds of worsted weight leftovers  (shown here using 5 different leftover colorways from my hand painted Felicity yarn- found in my Etsy shop.)
Gauge– 4.5 stitches per inch and 6.25 rpi in stockinette with size 7 needle
Skills Required– Knitting in the round, knit, purl, slipped stitches.

Directions
CO 200 sts. Join for working in the round, being careful not to twist. Place marker at BOR.

While following the directions, change between yarn colors as often as you’d like.  I changed yarns every 1.5- 2.5 rounds.

Edging: Work in garter stitch for 5 rounds (knit one round, purl one round, knit one round, purl one round, knit one round).
Pattern:  Work Dimple stitch pattern over the next 46 rounds.
Edging: Work in garter stitch for 5 rounds (knit one round, purl one round, knit one round, purl one round, knit one round).

Bind off all stitches in purl.  Weave in ends.  Wet block.
