Use all of your lovely new knitting and purling skills to make this adorable double basketweave cowl  by Karen Templer of Fringe Association and Fringe Supply Co. 

You will need

32 inch 10.5 circular knitting needle

600 yards of a light worsted or DK weight yarn. Karen made hers out of Sincere Sheep Luminous a wool silk blend. I am making mine out of Hazel Knits DK.. I hope you'll join us for this knit along. It's a great introduction to a garment it will help you learn to read your knitting and when you are done you'll have a great cowl to wear on cold spring nights.
