Okay, I am on a roll. Trying to get some of these Christmas gifts made so that I am not so frantic in December! I LOVE Malabrigo Rasta. The colors are so beautiful, it has a soft hand, and it is such a quick knit! I also think mobius cowls are fun. Here’s my newest creation.
1 Skein Rasta Eyelet Edge Mobius Cowl
This pattern is a quick knit for those times when you want to give someone you love a homemade gift but time is short. The stockinette stiches showcase the beautiful colors in the yarn while the yarn over edges add a bit of interest! This project is knit from the inside out. In other words, you will cast on and that will be the center of the cowl. Then, every round you knit/purl you will add stitches to either side of this cast on. Also, the first half of the cowl will be knit as if knitting on the right side of the fabric (knit side)and the second half of the cowl will be knit as if from the wrong side of the fabric (purl side).
