I'm a huge fan of simple, understated stitches. The knit and purl stitch are just so pretty, aren't they?! Projects like this cowl are accessible to beginner knitters but they also allow more advanced knitters to hone in on their technique, striving for consistent tension and uniform stitches. These kinds of projects also allow knitters with a bit of experience knit while also catching up on with friends or watching their TV shows. Simple stitches let your yarn shine, especially when you already have an exciting yarn color way to take center stage.
Today I'm sharing this Simply Maxima Cowl project because it's just the cowl that you're going to want to wear everyday this winter. It also will make a perfect holiday gift for just about anyone!
With two skeins of Manos del Uruguay Maxima yarn and knitting basics like cast on, knit, purl, and bind off, you're set to make this very simple cowl that's designed to fit in perfectly with your wardrobe, keep you cozy and warm, and showcase the incredible beauty of this hand dyed yarn. And, when you purchase your two skeins of yarn from our shop, we'll share a copy of this free pattern with you!
I used two skeins of the color Nantucket to make my cowl, but don't think you could go wrong with any of their colors for this project--multi-colored OR semi-solid! They're all really beautiful. What's your favorite?
