But there's the rub. One skein of Rasta contains about 90 yards. And due to the lovey variation in the colorways (which is one of the main attractions), I haven't had much luck in combining skeins in a project. Plus, did I mention SUPER BULKY? A bit tricky to work into garments.
But Rasta is perfect for cold weather accessories - like the Riveted Cowl. The pattern is available for instand download - Just $2 US
Riveted is a quick, wonderfully textured, and oh so warm cowl that uses just 1 skein of a super bulky yarn, like Malabrigo Rasta. The cowl is worked flat using a provisional cast on. The ends are grafted together with a half twist, resulting in a neck-hugging, moebius shape.
Measurements: approximately 6” (15cm) wide with 28” (71 cm) circumference
