I consulted a couple of patterns in the making of the cowl - Duotone for the structure and Irish Eyes for the bobbles. They had to match the hat of course! The body of the scarf is a tube shape knit on the round, which made for a nice mindless project and meant it was completed more quickly than I expected.
The project used exactly 200g of double knitting merino yarn, slightly less than I thought I had leftover, so it's good to know something like this can be made with so little yarn. Yes, apparently I only think to weigh my yarn at the end. It's big enough to wrap around the neck twice though, exactly what I wanted.
How's everyone's knitting plans going this year? I've started a couple more things, most excitingly something for me!
p.s. please excuse my derp face, it seems I was not ready for my close up.
