A few years ago Ysolda and Stephanie from Tiny Owl Knits teamed up with an idea for a partner project. The concept was to create a knitted version of “best friend necklaces”. Remember those? You kept one half, and your BFF kept the other?
Introducing the BFF cowl! Interlocking links are knitted flat, then grafted together for all eternity.
How it works: You knit both links (one of Ysolda’s, one of Stephanie’s) in your color, your friend knits them in a different color, then you swap one of the links and presto! You’re best knitty friends forever. Oh, you should also be available for late night rants and movie sessions too.
This project is perfect for swaps and for friends who’ve linked up across the globe because of knitting!
also: dont forget to see the charts! there is a link in the middle of the knitty page.. that may help with any confusion :) keep in mind the selvedge sts are not on the charts.. just continue to alternate the rows ♥
