Paintmixer is a quick garter cowl for chunky or super bulky yarn, designed for knitting on the go, or in a hurry, and having fun with colour.

The cowl is worked flat using a sideways construction and then joined into a loop when you have either run out of yarn or time

Ideal for a variegated yarn paired with a solid, or two contrasting solids, or play with pairing two different yarn weights for a thick and thin effect. Or stir it up by adding more colours to the mix..

Gauge is not critical with this project. 9mm needles were used with my sample, but please adjust your needle size to suit your own yarn. This design is suited to a range of weights from fingering to super bulky, and adaptable to any yardage.

The width of the cowl can be easily altered by casting on more or less sts, and adjusting the formula accordingly. Finished dimensions will vary with yarn weight.

Yardage listed for the sample in the pattern (170y) is the total amount, not per colour. The design can be adapted to different yardages by altering the width at the start, or by altering the length as you go.

My project notes are here.

Knitting by the seat of your pants 1 is a collection of mostly garter projects in a variety of shapes, focussing on simple yet interesting 4 row construction, which is easily memorised so you don’t need to carry the pattern around with you all the time.
