$ 1.00

All pattern sales through June will be donated to the Help Jason Triumph Over Cancer fund.

The Epic Galactic Battle Cowl isn't just for manning your Death Star station or for trekking across Hoth. This fantastic skinny cowl is also a fantastic stash buster. You can knit anything from just enough to squeeze over your head up to the Epic size of 104". Use up all those pesky bits of leftover sock yarn by knitting yourself an Epic Galactic Battle Cowl!

What you will need:
  •  Must Stash Perfect Self Striping Sock (lots of it) or any fingering weight yarn that you need to knit up--yes, Sport weight works fine too
  •  Needles - 2.25mm (US 1) if this idea gives you an eye twitch/headache just use whatever gives you a fabric you like. I recommend using at least a 3.25mm/ US 3 for Sport weight yarn
Skills needed:

This simple cowl is stockinette in the round. You should be able to:
  • Knit from a recipe- not a step-by-step, hand-holding pattern but more of a list of suggestion on how you can knit a cowl like we knit
  • Cast on with a provisional or long-tail cast on
  • Knit in Stockinette stitch
  • Kitchener Graft
  • Duplicate Stitch
