Here’s something to try - a big cozy cowl that you can wear wrapped once or twice. The stitch pattern grabs on to short stretches of color and turns them into little starbursts all over the fabric.

The pattern is simple - knit in the round on a big circular needle in Daisy Stitch. It does use pretty much all of a skein of Yowza, so you can just go until it seems like you're going to run out, do the border, and quit. And contrary to my usual MO, I'm not even going to hassle you about blocking it. What a deal.
Here's the full stats for the curious...
|I just love having my photo taken a zillion billion times|
Finished measurements: 10” wide and 54” around after blocking.
Yarn: Miss Babs Yowza, (560 yards per 8 oz; 100% Superwash Merino wool, shown in First Choice), 1 skein.
Needles: Size 8 US (5mm) 32” circular.
Notions: Stitch marker, tapestry needle.
Gauge: 20 sts and 28 rows = 4” in Daisy Stitch (gauge is not critical to this project)
