Welcome to the Commuter Knit Along! This time our project is a pretty little cowl designed to be completed in a flash! It's the perfect purse project for anytime, anywhere knitting!
A Little About This Knit Along
Commuter is a season spanning accessory with lots of visual appeal. We'll begin with a simple version of the Moebius cast-on, which will curl our circular needle into a compact figure eight shape, add an interesting stitch pattern, and conclude with a polished i-cord finish. Our Commuter will measure in at 6.5" wide with a 20 inch drop. Not too big, not too small, just right for a quick knit!
The Right Yarn
For this KAL, we're using Blue Sky Worsted Cotton. Imagine a yarn that is 100% organic, butter soft next to the skin, and glides through your fingers like silk. Great color choices too, ranging from delicate pastels to vibrant primary colors. Which will you choose?
