Scrappy Cowl

 My basket of scrap yarn has been over-flowing with odd bits of Caron Simply Soft from Oddball knitting. I needed to find a project that would utilize some of the yarn and help me to find the bottom of the basket.

When I saw this free cowl pattern, I knew it would put a sizeable dent in the pile of scrap yarn. I was not disappointed.

The arrangement of stitches makes an interesting texture and is reversible. The pattern calls for four repeats, but I only knit three because I did not want the cowl to be too bulky.

I'll definitely make another cowl from this pattern.


  1. That should definitely help with the winter weather. It looks nice and snuggly!

  2. This is so nice for something from scraps....great job.

  3. Another fantastic scrappy project! I'm off to check out that pattern.

  4. Very nice pictures of the cowl. It really did turn out great. The colors look wonderful together...and look perfect on you too!

  5. I really like that, Nancy. I'll have to add it to my queue!

  6. I love that! I love the combination of colors and the texture looks interesting but not in competition with the colors. Nice! g

  7. Beautiful!! I love the cowl. It looks so colorful and warm. I know you will enjoy it this winter!

    I also love knitting basket bottom diving! I find the most amazing things on the bottom of my basket--lots of left-overs and lots of trinkets I had forgotten about too.

  8. Wow! I really like how that cowl turned out. What a great use of your scrap yarn.

  9. I really like the idea of the cowl, it would be so cosy walking in the snow...

    And then I caught a glimpse of those socks, there's turquoise in there!!! And limey green I think...got to go back and find out.

    My most fav colors.


  10. One of those would be wonderful under a winter coat?!

  11. Nancy that is an awesome COWL!!! I JUST LOVE IT

  12. More scrap projects! Love it! It is such a unique and personal knit too.

  13. I remembered seeing this post but did not realise it was from you - what a small world!
    Have just sent it to our sister Barbara. She loves knitting on circular needles and has as much yarn as Linda and I do fabric so she may well give this one a go.
    Thanks for sharing,
