Kunterbunt - a new free pattern
















Teaching at my local yarn shop I’m always looking for easy but fun patterns for novice knitters. Since I wanted to make a shop sample out of this yarn anyways I came up with this pattern...
This scarf/cowl is knitted in the round and with a bulky yarn it is a fast and easy knit. 
To have a room to play with length the pattern comes in two sizes.
The longer version looks great folded over and being hold with a pin. The shorter version
is just a simple cowl to add a little warmth and color on cold days. It can be easily dressed up with a button or pin too.


Finished measurements:


18.5 (27.5)” circumference
4.5” height


Material:
1 (2) skeins of Plymouth Yarns, Expressions or 80 (110) yards of bulky weight yarn.
16 (24)” circular needle size US 8 / 5 mm


Gauge: 3.5 sts = 1” over stockinette stitch


Instructions:


Cast on 65 (96) sts.
Join carefully not to twist.
(Purl 3 rounds, knit 5 rounds) 3 times
Purl 3 rounds.
Bind off loosely.


Tip: If you tend to cast on or bind off to tight, try to use 1 size bigger needles
