(the cowl is great mindless knitting for while you’re chatting over the holidays ☻)

There is also a matching hat - Muchness Hat

I was finishing this while watching Alice in Wonderland, hence the name.

With fabulously shaded yarn, often you need just the simplest of stitches to bring out its beauty - so this cowl uses just knit and purl stitches, with slipped stitches for a built-in icord edge to make much muchness with very little.

Both sides are nice so it’s worth the effort of kitchenering.

The original is about 20 x 125 cm (8 x 50”) and used a single skein.

There is a lot of scope for modification - just be sure to have a little extra yarn on hand.

many thanks to the testers:
