The Big Daddy cowl mixes a variegated with semisolid single round stripes to add contrast without too much distraction. Knit in a loose gauge, it makes a comfy cowl that drapes nicely. It's a great way to mix up your favorite fandom yarns.
This pattern was previously part of the It's a Kit sets from Nerd Girl Yarns and the colorways are now available dyed to order. Shown here is the Welcome to Rapture set in All Good Things & No Gods or Kings Only Men colorways.
If you'd like to use different colors, I recommend pairing a semisolid with a variegated to get the same effect. While you may be able to use another bulky weight yarn, this pattern has only been worked with Squish Bulky.
- 2 Skeins of Squish Bulky
- US 13 24" Circular needle to work in the round (or other sized needle to achieve gauge of 3 sts X 4 rows per inch in stockinette before washing)
