We’ve reached our final week of the Knitumentary project and I have a little bonus that I think you’ll really like.
If you have some leftover yarn from Mimosa, how about making a matching cowl? It’s pretty easy to do if you have your original gauge swatch and remember how many repeats you worked.
I love the idea of making a matching cowl that is detachable because when worn it will give the illusion that it part of the neckline of your pullover. To make your look seasonally-appropriate for February, add a long-sleeve tee. Then come spring, off comes the cowl, swap out the long-sleeve tee with a cami, and you’re ready for warmer temps!
Easy Peasy Math
Here’s how to make your cowl:
#1 Pull out your gauge swatch and measure it edge to edge. Write that number down.
#2 Take the number of stitches you casted on for your swatch and divide that by the width of your swatch that you wrote down in step 1. This equals your stitches per inch.
#3 Then, take your stitches per inch and multiply that by the number of inches wide you want to make your cowl.
#4 Cast on the number of repeats that comes closest to the width you desire, then knit for as long as you want your cowl to be.
Seam ends together, block and show it off!
This has been so much fun, and when you finish and block your beautiful new top, I’d love to see your finished creations! Please share your photos on this Ravelry thread.
Thanks again for joining me on this journey!
