Having rummaged through my stash recently to donate some yarn to Studio Royale Assisted Living Knit Group, I actually used some of my scraps to make this seamed mobius cowl, which will be donated to Handmade Especially For You. I made the mistake of “seaming” this into a mobius. I only say that because I am deciding that a mobius cowl should only be for shorter cowls that one would not wrap twice.
Only two yarns were identifiable:
- Super Yarn Mart! Superlon (Fiber Content: 100% Super Spun Acrylic; Yarn Color: 100 Black; Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted)
- Plymouth Encore (Fiber Content: 75% Acrylic, 25% Wool; Yarn Color: 0256; Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted)
Apparently, I got used to the new wimpy worsted weight yarns and used a US 8/H – 5 mm hook, which cause portions of the cowl fabric to be dense. Crucify me for my attitude, but it’s a donation, so I am not really concerned, but have taken the knowledge and will apply in future projects.
The name of this cowl – Natural High by Bloodstone – comes from the colors used: white, ecru, browns, blacks and greys.
If you are keen to make something similar, here is the recipe: 24 double crochets worked between stitches to desired length with a crab stitch border of the Feza Lady, triple-stranded.
