Its British Wool Week and all this week we are taking a look at Erika Knights fabulous range of British wools. One of my favourite wools by Erika Knight is her Maxi Wool, a super chunky yarn which comes in a range of gorgeous colours.
With autumn well and truly taken up residence and winter right around the corner snood time has officially arrived so it seemed only right that I hook up a lovely cosy cowl using Erika Knights Maxi Wool.
This cowl is super simple to make and only takes a couple of hours.
Erika Knight Maxi Wool in Marni x2
10mm Crochet Hook
1. Untwist the hank and wind into a ball, its definitely worth the effort to do this otherwise you are likely to get into a tangle very quickly!
2. Chain 75, or until you can loop the chain comfortably around your neck twice. Have a play and see what looks good. Keep your chains loose to prevent curling later on.
2. Slip stich the first and the last chain together to make a loop. Make sure the chain is not twisted before doing this.
3. Row 1 – Chain three, then Treble (UK) stitch into each chain.
4. Continue with the tr until you return to where you started, then slip stitch into the third chain of your original chain three.
5. Repeat step 3 and 4, this time putting the Treble stitch between each stitch in the row below.
6. Repeat until the cowl is your desired width, this one has six rows which took a hank and a half of wool.
7. Using the knitters needles sew in the loose ends.
And this is how it looks on, its so cosy for these chilly days!
Minnie certainly approves!
