Twenty-four little skeins in an Advent calendar…thirty mini skeins from a retreat exchange…dozens of little balls of fingering weight from socks of years past…samples every month from your favorite yarn tasting subscription-- wherever your collection of small balls or skeins of yarn are from, this cowl is the perfect solution for using them up!

Pair your mini skeins with a contrasting accent color and start knitting this colorful, close fitting cowl. The easy to memorize stripe pattern uses mostly knit stitches and a single row of a textured pattern to keep things interesting. Worked in the round as a tube on circular needles and joined end to end, the pattern includes notes for changing the overall length or width of the cowl to fit your style.

Skills Needed
Provisional cast on, knit, multi-stitch increases and decreases, Kitchener stitch.

Finished Measurements
Approximately 8.5”/21.5 cm tall and 21.5”/54.5 cm in circumference

This pattern is designed to work with a random selection of at least 24 fingering weight mini skeins of varying fiber content and slight changes in weight of approximately 4-5 grams each (or about 20 yards/18 meters) along with about 135 yds 123 m of a highly contrasting fingering weight yarn (suggested colors are dark blue, dark gray, black, white, bright or metallic colors).
