Not only does it get cold in Kansas, it stays windy. Add heavy snow fall and you’ll find the perfect storm begging for serious winter knitting! Flint Hill is the perfect answer for such wintry conditions. Knit in the super-bulky Magnum yarn by Cascade, this cowl knits up quickly at 2 stitches per inch. And the always-soft Peruvian Highland wool is a great choice for delicate exposed areas such as the neck.
Flint Hill is knit in a simple pattern that allows the fabric to wrap comfortably around the neck and/or head, while also creating a denser, warmer scarf. The button adds an interesting detail once the scarf has been twisted and then joined together.
Knitting with a super-bulky yarn creates instant gratification for the knitter. Not to mention creating an incredibly warm garment that is as practical as it is stylish. I hope you enjoy Flint Hill, and find it keeps you warm while keeping winter’s cold out.
