A while ago I received a beautiful set of mini-skeins as a gift from a dear friend. I loved them so much, and I wanted to use them right away! But they were too fragile to knit into a pair of socks, and they were not enough to make an accessory out of just those minis…
So I decided to pair them with some neutral toned yarn that I had in my stash. Something that would bring out the colors in this beautiful speckled yarn.
The result is this super easy cowl, that I hope you will like!
You can add as many color bands as you like. You can use a gradient, or just an assorted combination of multiple colors! Just let your imagination fly.
12 inches (30 cm) wide and 56 inches (140 cm) long, made into a loop.
650 yards (590 m) of fingering weight yarn in the Main Color. I used 2 skeins of Solo Light by Rainbow Heirloom (100% superwash merino – 100g/400 yards) in the colorway Gray Whale colorway.
A set of 5 mini-skeins of fingering weight yarn or 44 yards (40 m) of leftovers of fingering weight yarn in 5 different colors. I used a set of Pure Merino by Woolberry Fiber Co (100% merino - 5 miniskeins with 20g/88 yards each) in the Secret Admirer colorway.
