now that the semester is over i have a month to knit to my hearts content!
so i've been filling up on tea and cocoa and doing just that.

the cowls:



some "turbands" aka twisted earbands that look turban-esque. i've seen them on fashion blogs and had to give them a shot!






a beanie. look how adorable i think i am!

I love the turbands. Especially the green one. Did you use a pattern or make it up as you went?

i made up the pattern as i went along. each took between an hour and two though, and doesn't use too much yarn. so if you have half a skein laying around, i'd give it a shot!

do you have a pattern for the cowls?  It's so hard to find a good pattern for those, mine always end up either too big or too small.   Wink

Great work! I especially like the turbands; I might have to make one myself. If I had the guts, I would really play up the "turban" aspect by adding beads or rhinestones and maybe a feather at the twist.

@tiffie1023 its not a pattern, but its super easy, so here's a general idea of what i do.

first off, use a chunky yarn. i like using 5 and above.
on needles a few sizes bigger than that suggested on the label, cast on as many stitches across as you'd like. depending on the yarn, i go for around 20-26. knit, purl, seed, cable, or however else you'd like it to look for as long as you'd like it to be. keep laying it on yourself to accurately see the size. then make it around 5 more rows for good measure. [another way to measure is by skein, sometimes i just knit until i run out of 2 balls, etc.] connect the ends. you can do this by binding off and sewing together with a yarn needle, or knit them together or whatever you're comfortable with.
you've got a cowl!


let me know if you need anything cleared up!
