Drop Stitch Fashion Cowl

That is the first time I ever knit anything without using a pattern. I had 4 skeins of a wonderful blue green Crelando Paula yarn which I bought last year and wanted to make a girft for my friend Hermione so this is what I came up with.

It is a very simple and super fast knit, finished it in less than 1 hour and I'm a slow knitter.

You will need:
4 skeins of super bulky yarn
19mm (US 35)
a tapestry needle or crochet hook

Level: easy


k = Knit
p = Purl
yo = Yarn Over

Cast on 22 stitches with double yarn. I personally prefer the long tail cast on method.

Row 1: (k1, yo twice) repeat until last stitch, k1
Row 2: (k1, drop the 2 yo) repeat until last stitch, k1
Row 3: knit
Row 4: purl

Repeat above 8 times.
Cast of and sew together.

A perfect knit for the beginner or for a last minute gift.

Hope you will enjoy it.
