Arboreal Cowl, a quick knit or a nifty gift!

arborealAs the days get shorter, and knitting time becomes more limited, super bulky yarn and needles make for quick gifts!

The Arboreal Cowl, available as a free Ravelry download, uses just 106 yards of super bulky yarn and can be knit in a variety of yarns. We love it in Swagger (1 skein for $26.50) or in Borealis knit together with 2 strands of Kidsilk Haze (2 x $15.95) for amazing loft and depth of colour. The pattern also suggests holding 3 strands of worsted weight together to achieve the same gauge.
