Knitted Cowl using Circular Needles

knitted cowl
This cowl is fun and easy to make. I used one ball of yarn and circular needles to knit this cowl. I find knitting the cowl using a multicoloured ball of yarn makes it interesting and unique. 
To make this colourful knitted cowl, I used...
ball of yarn
US #11 circular needle
needle to stitch the ends
knitted cowl
First cast on 49 stitches to the circular needle. 
Then in first row: K1 (knit one stitch), P1 (purl one stitch) and the next row: P1, K1 until desired width of the cowl. 
Cast off by K1 and P1 so it stays stretchy.
Attach the knitted rectangle to make the shape of the cowl using a needle and the end of the yarn.

  1. Pretty, bright colours! Short instructions usually mean it's easy, but I don't know the "secret" knitting code, so I'd need a bit of help if I decide to try it (lol).
