Pretty simple, eh? It makes for some great train knitting while listening to music and/or podcasts.
P.S. Thank you to everyone out there who’s been reading my blog this year. You guys definitely keep me writing – it’s nice to know you’re not writing into the ether…
Addendum: It took me a month to finish this scarf since I put it down and picked it up several times. Otherwise, it should take no longer than a week or two – depends on your knitting speed.
Addendum #2: For a cool looking chunky cowl with this pattern, you can double up 2 worsted yarns (creates a nice marble pattern) with size 15 needles. You can knit it flat and sew up or crochet the edges together.
