Easy Peasy Cowl

This was a fun project.  I used large needles, large yarn, and an easy stitch.  I call this cowl Easy Peasy.  And as most of you know I love to use variegated yarn and I love the layers of color I got out of this skein.  The autumn colors really standout on this brown sweater.  Yes, I know this is not fall but I really wanted to wear this before our Nebraska winter transitions into spring. I have had this done for a couple of weeks.  I hear we may get our last snow fall at the end of the week.  It is not unusual though to get snow in April.

Easy Peasy Cowl

Yarn: Chunky

Needles: US 10

Pattern: Double Seed Stitch (Multiple of 4 sts +2)
Row 1 (RS): K2, *p2, k2,rep from * across.
Row 2: P2, * k2, p2, rep from * across.
Row 3: Rep Row 2.
Row 4: Rep Row 1.
Rep these 4 rows for Double Seed St.

Cast-on 40 stitches (or number preferred for cowl width) using invisible (provisional) cast-on. This gives you live stitches to finish project as a continual fabric.

Knit using Double Seed Stitch pattern until desired length is reached.  Attach beginning end to ending end by using the Kitchener stitch.  I like to put a twist in my scarf or you can leave it in a straight circle.

Are you trying to finish a winter project?  What is it?

Happy Knitting,
