Steel Grey Chunky Circular Scarf (original version)
This was the original cowl I made, again I was using yarn in my stash.
Based on Steel Grey Chunky Circular Scarf by Hand Knitted Things
Cast on 85 stitches with 5 strands of DK yarn held together using size 15 mm circular needles.
Use size 15mm needles to keep the knitting loose and drape nicely. Smaller needles will make a stiff fabric.
The 5 strands can become twisted together during the cast on process. Be sure to keep the strands in order before starting to knit.
Place a maker for the start of the round, use a small piece of scrap yarn, Be sure to start with all stitches in line inside the ‘ring’ and not twisted.
Join for knitting in the round.
