This is a great project for a beginning knitter, or those like me who sometimes just want to make something awesome without trying too hard. Knit with a super bulky yarn on US size 11 needles, this cowl knits up fast and fluffy.
Here’s what you need:
- 1-2 skeins super bulky yarn (I used Lion Brand Homespun Thick & Quick in Coral Stripes). One skein was enough for me, at 160 yds/skein
- 1 pair US 11 (8mm) knitting needles
- large-eye blunt needle, to weave in ends
Here’s what you do:
Cast on 13 stitches. Knit every stitch until cowl is the desired length. Cast off and weave in ends. Stitch the two ends of your long rectangle together using the large-eye needle to make an infinity-style scarf.
I used almost my whole 160 yd skein, making my long rectangle about 90″. This is pretty darn long. I could’ve made it a bit shorter and it still would’ve been a very generous cowl. It’s totally up to you! Stop knitting when you’re happy with the way yours wraps around you. Once I stitched my ends together to form my loop, I just looped it around my neck twice and ta-da: a giant, fluffy cowl!
It’s like a snuggly, knitted hug from me to you. Happy knitting!
