I’ve made a bit of progress on my knit cowl, and I love how it’s shaping up so far! Here’s what it looks like.
I am really enjoying knitting with Boutique Magical Yarn by Red Heart. It’s soft. It’s colorful. It’s fun to knit with. What more can I ask for? The photo below shows you a close-up of the stitches.
Have you joined us in this knit along yet? You can find the pattern in our Winter Issue (it’s called the Simply Magical Cowl and is featured on the cover of the magazine). If you’ve ever wondered how to knit a cowl, this is a great starting point.
I also wanted to mention yarn amounts. I can already tell that I will need more than one skein of yarn to complete this project. I’ve heard from other knitters who’ve experienced the same thing. Because tension is unique to each person, the amount of yarn required for each pattern can vary slightly from person to person. So don’t be shy about picking up an extra skein just in case. You might need it.
And be sure to send us photos of your knit cowl. We’d love to see them too!
