Welcome to Creative Friday.
This is the special project I have been knitting for a dear friend’s birthday, a circular cowl scarf. I spun the beautiful BFL and silk roving and then knitted it up over a few days. I love the softness of luxury yarns, perfect for a scarf that is going to be worn so close to the skin. I spun up the roving to about a double knitting or Aran weight yarn and knitted the cowl with size 10 mm needles, this gave the scarf a lovely lacy, airy feel, so that it wouldn’t be heavy when worn. I knitted it in the round on circular needles with a long cable.
Once finished the cowl will wrap around your neck 3 or 4 times, so soft and warm.
Here is the pattern:)
