Hug by Sharon Mooney


December 2017
Aran (8 wpi) ?
6 stitches and 7 rows = 1 inch
in 2 x 2 rib stitch (circular gauge) using size US 8/5mm knitting needles before blocking
US 10 - 6.0 mm
US 8 - 5.0 mm
164 yards (150 m)
Cowl has an unstretched circumference of 19”/48.3cm and is 10”/25.4cm tall without blocking. It will comfortably stretch to a circumference of 28”/71.1cm. I found blocking unnecessary in this cowl.

What’s more comforting than a hug? Nothing. I called this pattern Hug because it’s sooo soft and pliable, fitting little child through adult comfortably. The yarn is sumptuous luxury without a lot of trouble! You will use the entire skein of yarn for this lovely cowl.

This is another of my “First Project Series” patterns. This is perfect for a first in the round project. Give it a try, if you haven’t before. It’s as easy as you can get with yarn that won’t disappoint.

It’s inexpensively priced to let everyone have a Hug!
