Almost two years ago my mom gave me a single skein of Knitpicks Imagination. I liked the colors but had no idea what to do with a single skein of fingering weight yarn. It sat around for a long time while I waited for inspiration. Then finally it came to me, a cute little cowl to help keep the chill away.
I pulled out the stitch dictionary, experimented, and I eventually settled on a stretchy slanted rib, which also makes it easy to loop around twice for days when you need a little snuggle.
I really like the way this simple stitch helps break up the colors and creates a rainbow zigzag on mine. It also looks great on the wrong side.
Its so simple and quick that I decided I’d share. It only took me a couple nights to complete so its a great way to use up small skeins of fingering weight yarn. With the holidays coming up it’s make a great little gift too.
