I love a nice big cowl. Love! I’ve always got some sort of scarf, shawl, or other cozy wrap around my neck. I also love a quick project!
Enter Fleece Artist’s Slubby yarns! It started with Slubby Blue (100% BFL wool), then expanded to Thatch (mostly BFL wool with a thread of dark Suffolk to add interesting texture) and most recently, Slubby Mix (50% BFL, 50% Merino). Slubby Blue is now discontinued and on its way out, so I thought I’d give it a proper send-off! I have two skeins of the Blomidon and two skeins of the Silver.
I used the Blomidon and Cat Bordhi’s Moebius Cast-On to start a cowl that will be long enough to wrap around my neck twice. I knit in seed stitch until the Blomidon ran out. Then I kept going with a skein of Silver.
I’d planned to use up all four skeins in the cowl, but found that the width using just two was perfect! So now I have an amazingly squishy and cozy cowl, and enough yarn for some matching accessories (or another cowl in a different style?)!
