One Ball Wonder: Cosy Reversible Knit Cowl

Hey lovelies!

Autumn (Fall) is slowly creeping up on us (seriously guys, where has all the time gone!) and I can only think about cosy knits…lots and lots of cosy knits. I’ve been working on some designs lately and I can’t wait to share them with you guys.

Speaking of cosy knits, I have a few balls of The Petite Wool from We Are Knitters (which is such a squishy and delightful yarn by the way) and after pondering on what to make with them, I decided to see what I could create with one ball out of my stash. The result is this reversible knit cowl…I love one ball wonders! This cowl is a quick and easy project, which is perfect for beginners; more importantly, it is uber cosy and great for those cold autumn and winter months. So, let’s do this!

Supplies & tools:

  • 1 ball of We Are Knitters’ the petite wool
  • US 7mm 32″ circular needles
  • Stitch marker
  • Darning/tapestry needle
  • Scissors

Abbreviations:

CO – cast on
K – knit
P – purl
Rep – repeat

Skill level: Beginner

Pattern:

CO 124 sts, place stitch marker and join to knit in the round, being careful not to twist stitches

Round 1–5: *K1, P1; rep from * around

Round 6: K1 around

Round 7: *K4, P1; rep from * around, ending K4

Round 8–12: Repeat round 7

Round 13: *P4, K1; rep from * around, ending with P4

Round 14–18: Repeat round 13

Round 19–30: Repeat round 7–18

Round 31: K1 around

Round 32–35: *K1, P1; rep from * around

Bind off and weave in all ends

That’s it, you’re done. You can rock this baby during the colder months or make one (or two, three, four…) as a gift. The yarn is quite stretchy as well so you can wrap the cowl round your neck twice as below.

Pattern note: You can adjust the pattern (less wide or wider) by casting on a multiple of 5 stitches plus 4. To make the scarf higher, repeat round 7–18 until you have the height you want. Don’t forget you’ll need more than one ball of yarn if you would like the cowl wider or higher.

Here are a few more pictures of the cowl..

Here’s another pattern that was supposed to drop in 2022 but sadly didn’t. I’m hoping 2024 is the year 🤞🏽🤞🏽. At this rate, I may have three or four test knits going at the same time 😳😳.

This was mega fun to knit and I love 😍😍 that the stitch pattern looks like a crochet stitch 🙌🏽🙌🏽.

🌟Don’t ever let self doubt hold you back from progressing 🌟.

- Believe in yourself and your skills/abilities. 

- Be kind to yourself and be constructive when self doubt sets in. 

- Talk about your fears with at least someone in your close circle of friends. 

- Set specific goals and put in the time, planning and effort required to move ahead. 

- Fight the fear, you are more than capable 🙌🏽.

Still an absolute fave 😍😍😍. I designed this beautiful baby blanket when I was pregnant with baby number 2 and I used it a lot when she was a baby 👶🏽. Also used it for baby number 3.

🌟I have to remind myself this, always!

Starting over might feel scary, but remember that you’re not starting from nothing. You’ve already been through a lot and learned valuable lessons along the way. Use that experience to your advantage. 

It’s like building on a strong foundation instead of starting from scratch. Embrace this new beginning with confidence, knowing that you have what it takes to progress. Don’t let fear hold you back from pursuing your dreams. Every fresh start is a chance to grow and become even better than before.

🌟So many benefits from indulging in knitting and/or crocheting🌟.

1️⃣ Stress reduction: Both activities promote relaxation and can serve as a form of stress relief due to their repetitive and rhythmic motions.

2️⃣ Creative expression: Knitting and crochet allow for endless creativity through choosing yarns, patterns, stitches, and designs.

3️⃣ Mindfulness: Engaging in either craft encourages mindfulness by focusing attention on the present moment and the tactile sensations of the materials and tools.

4️⃣ Cognitive stimulation: Following patterns, counting stitches, and manipulating yarn and needles/hooks can enhance cognitive function, including memory, concentration, and problem-solving skills.

5️⃣ Sense of accomplishment: Completing a knitting or crochet project provides a tangible sense of achievement and boosts self-esteem.

6️⃣ Fine motor skills: The intricate hand movements required in both knitting and crochet can improve dexterity, hand-eye coordination, and finger strength.

7️⃣ Therapeutic benefits: Both crafts have been shown to have therapeutic effects, aiding in managing chronic pain, alleviating symptoms of anxiety and depression, and promoting overall well-being.
