Does this cowl fit over your head also or would you need to make it wider or/and longer? Thanks

Knitting Up A Storm said...

It's already large in length...it loops twice. You can make it as wide as you want, just add more seed stitch (*k1,p1,k1*)

We were excited to try this but it seemed to get taller and taller but never wider. On the model it looks like it has a huge opening. Ours looked like a long tube. Anyone else have luck with it?

Knitting Up A Storm said...

This pattern is a long tube. The 99 sts worked in the rd is the width, and when you knit in seed for 5.5 inches, that's the height. you have to manually wrap the tube twice when it's done to get that look...it's that easy of a pattern.

Bmoves said...

Thanks for the quick reply. Question, should it be knitted flat and then joined in the round? Mine is turning out like a long tubular noodle, not long and thin like the pictures.

Ms. Anna said...

NO, it's one way or another. You still need to use circular needles to achieve it since you cast on 99sts. You can work it row-by-row in the seed or garter stitch, then sew the edges together. I would read through the instructions again because it resembles more of a doughnut shape than a noodle. If you don't knit in the round and just work it flat, if it doesn't resemble a 99st wide scarf sewn together, it's not right.
