Advent Cowl 1st December

 Here's the chart;

remember to start at the bottom and work from right to left. There will usually be two rounds per day, with no charts on Saturday or Sunday to give you a chance to catch up if you like.

I did a long tail cast on using two balls of yarn, one main and one contrast, to get this white border. If you use two balls of yarn to do the long tail cast on you need never agonise again about how much you need to pull from the ball to enough enough for all the stitches!


Join in round without twisting stitches and knit one round in k1 p1 single rib

Round 1

1st Dec

  1. I've never done a long tail cast on!

    1. I always do it! I think it may be stretchier than a cable (knit into the previous stitch ) cast on. Try YouTube or else do your usual one.

      And a German twisted or old Norwegian is even stretchier!

    3. I need to investigate these! I am a great fan of the Norwegian knitters Arne and Carlos and their knitting videos on youutube.
