I Moss be dreaming

Introducing the Moss Cowl. This is perhaps one of the easiest knits ever and my go-to for cowls when you want them done quickly – no fuss, no muss.

DSC00482This little gem is for my brother’s gorgeous lady-friend. I knit one for her a while ago but it was misplaced and this was so easy that I had no worries whipping up another one for her.

DSC00481I used a chunky wool with 12mm needles because I wanted some bulk but a nice drape. Have done it with DK weight wool and size 8 needles also and was perfectly fine. The basic pattern is as follows…

Cast on 15 stitches (you can make this as wide or as skinny as you want just make sure there are an uneven number of stitches)

Row 1: *K1, P1* across ending on a knit.

Repeat until scarf is desired length (I kept going until I could wrap it comfortably around my neck twice).

Bind off using a stretchy bind off

Sew together, block lightly and enjoy.
