Some versatility for your holiday knit-gifting!

You can make one of each or two of one – it’s up to you!

The projects use a total of about 320 yards of yarn (a skein of Big Trend from Marks & Kattens will give you just enough) or 160 yards each.

The half-linen stitch cowl (7-1/2” x 22” circumference) sits up near the neck with enough room for breathing! The bias-stitched scarf (6” x 42”) is enough to wear flat or wrapped around your neck like a cowl.

Either way, you’ll have as much fun wearing these as you did knitting them!

The colorways of the Big Trend work wonderfully well with these designs -- and the feel is soft and comfy, not at all scratchy. I love how the cowl is just about a perfect color striping … and the bias-stitch for the scarf highlights the blocks of color nicely.
