Using up this leftover yellow yarn has taken a while…I’ve managed to make a loom hat and cowl out of it with enough leftover to make a pom pom for the hat.
I knitted the cowl on a straight loom, only a small size as I generally prefer thinner scarves and cowls. Those pictures of oversized super chunky scarves look nice on the catwalk but are they really so practical? Ten steps and I overheat!!
So, I prefer little ones that I can wrap around my neck two or three times.
Using a knitting loom makes the stitches a bit looser in my opinion, at least with hand knitting you can control the tension easier, with loom knitting it isn’t as though you can go up or down a needle. For this project I don’t mind it being a bit looser as the yarn is soft and snuggly.
Now I have a cowl, two hats and a knitted headband with this yarn. 🙂
