Merlin "Magic Knot" Cowl Designer Knitting Pattern

Regular price $ 10.00

This designer knitting pattern was inspired by the magic knot technique for joining yarns. The project is easy and fun, and the results are uniquely yours.

Designer Knitting Pattern
This designer knitting pattern is very easy to knit. But the real fun is how you can create your own unique cowl based on your personal style. Whether you like fashions that are colorful or more subdued, select compatible yarns in five or more colors from your stash or purchase the perfect combination.

Work the stockinette stitch in the round, changing colors whenever you feel inspired. And each time connect the yarns using the magic knot technique. It results in a knot that is no more than a tiny bump and should never come apart. And surprise has no tails to work in when finishing your creation.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
