#25 Bobble Cowl
This great intro-to-bobbles project has small balls on either end of a garter-stitch strip that is grafted together to form a circle. Or, add another skein or two, knit it longer and leave it as a scarf.
Tip: Though the pattern calls for a provisional cast-on, you can use a traditional cast-on and bind-off and seam them together in finishing.
The crochet hook is used for the provisional cast-on. You can use any method.
