Recipe for a warm neck!

Cold & wintry here...lots of neck warming required.   Inspired by similiar crochet cowls at Calico &Ivy decided to knit one....*

Take one ball of Kidsilk Haze in a mushroomy colour & one rather spesh hank of Koigu...this one was nice & earthy with greys & browns.

Cast on 101 stitches on 8 mm circular needle with one strand of each of the yarns.  Join these stitches as you knit one row in the round...I twisted the stitches so as to end up with a twisted cowl.  Did I do this on purpose?  Maybe!!
Keep knitting in moss stitch (1 purl 1 plain) until yarn is nearly used up.  Cast off loosely.  Quite a bit of KSH is left over...

Enjoy the warmth :)

* It is especially satisfying to complete & wear a project inside 5 days when I have so so many other things on the go that just go very slowly!
And I would like to put more time into learning to crochet one day...when I have more time...but not this week!


  1. Very nice! And it seems easy enough for someone like me.


  2. I've got of these on the needles at the moment, I've gone two balls though, which for me means two times more dropped stitches than normal! I'm guessing by the time I'm done winter will be long gone!
