I like to watch the Super Bowl, it's somewhat of a family affair, chili simmering, weenie dogs for apps, and brownies just in time for half-time. Like most of you, I'm sure, I need to knit while watching TV especially sports. I have to admit I did take a break from knitting to watch the commercials! This is the twisted rib cowl I knit up while watching Super Bowl XLV. I used Shokay Yak fiber, which is such a wonderful and soft yarn to knit with and to wear. Too bad I will not be wearing this one, it's a gift for my Aunt. But, I will be making one for myself soon only in a beautiful turquoise color. Did you knit during the Super Bowl? If so, tell me what you knit in the comments below, even better post a picture to Stash's facebook page. As you know, I love show and tell!
Here's the pattern so you can make one too!
Yarn: Shokay 100% Yak yarn 164 yds, one skein
Needles: US Size 9 16" circ
CO 83 sts, join for working in the round being careful not to twist.
*K2, P2, repeat until piece measures 9 inches.
Bind off LOOSELY!
I did use a German Twisted Cast-on for this cowl. This cast-on is very elastic and is perfect for cowls, socks, gloves, and hats. Here is a video tutorial from "theknitwitch" posted on Youtube: German Twisted Cast-on
