This is a really simple project, but I'm very happy with how it turned out, seasonally inappropriate though it may be. I just knit a long tube of stockinette and crocheted the ends of it together. I had about a billion smallish lengths of my hand-dyed, recycled yarns to use up and show off--and here they are! The cowl is super cozy and warm, with wool, mohair, alpaca, nylon and cotton.



You can find more detail pics, and some more information, over here on my blog: http://www.miloknows.com/2013/05/recent-knitting-gloriously-scrappy-cowl.html.

It's bad enough wasting time, without killing it.

I love scrappy yarn scarves and hats...yours turned out very lovely!

The colors just seem to magically blend, don't they? Cheesy
