The Urban Cowl is one of ultimate favorite items to wear. It not only looks good with almost every piece of clothing, but it can also be knit in one afternoon. I wanted to make another one on Saturday and I wanted to use my All-n-One loom. So I sat down and realized that I could use 2 pegs as one to create a “bigger” stitch for my Malabrigo Rasta yarn.
The picture shown uses almost 2 skeins of Malabrigo Rasta, it goes around the neck twice. If you prefer, you can use 1 skein for a one loop cowl.
Warm, fast and easy were priority for this knit. I needed something that would look chunky and fashionable, something I could wear with my jeans, something that screamed urban style.
All-n-One loom, 30 pegs. You will use 2 pegs as 1.
