Cowls and Cakes

I decided I don't like crocheting. At least not frilly little things to wear on your feet (aka barefoot sandals). I realized I like knitting because there are always a definite number of stitches on your needle, and crocheting is always looking for the next stitch. And ANYTHING can be made into a stitch, which usually I would like, but it's just too much for me. I started another cowl because my hands were bored, but I need summer knits! I also started making felt fruit toys for kids, and that's going well, I just need to get myself to the store for more felt and some sewing machine thread other than black. Black stitching just looks funny on a banana.

I'm posting the pattern for my coral bulky cowl, because I'm making a variation of it in a light tan color. About as close to instant gratification as you can get with a scarf, I think I started this one one afternoon and finished it the next day.

I used Patons Classic Wool, which is medium weight, and doubled it up.

Cast on 88 stitches on a circular US15 needle. Join, and work in k2p2 in the round so that it creates ribbing. Knit for 10", bind off. Block so that all your stitches lay flat. Done!

My other project to start thinking about is my fiance's birthday cake. I've got a week to think about it, and whether I want to bother with fondant or not. I'm thinking Formula One Racing. Maybe? We'll see how adventurous I feel, but definitely work in project and finished pictures to come! for more free patterns

  1. Hi! Thanks for posting this fun pattern. How long was the circular needle you used? 24"?

  2. Yes, 24" circular needle, sorry, forgot that part!

  3. I don't have a 15 circular can I use straights and then just seam the back? Thanks

  4. Yes, that will work. Your stitches may be a little squashed on a straight needle if you're working in one piece, but the outcome will look the same.

  5. When you say doubled up did use use two strands of yarn from 2 balls?

  6. Did it take the two balls totally? Thanks.

    1. Honestly, I don't remember. I'd definitely plan on using most of both, and having a little left over.

  7. what bulky yarn can I use?
