The Outlander Evangelist knits again!

It’s safe to say this cowl has been my obsession since this picture was first released. It looks so warm and chunky and the texture is just gorgeous. I was dying to make one myself but as I just started knitting a few weeks ago I had no idea how manageable this would be. photo 2Screen Shot 2014-08-27 at 7.49.50 PM Screen Shot 2014-08-27 at 7.50.03 PM Screen Shot 2014-08-27 at 7.50.28 PM

The verdict? It’s so easy. Once again my local knit shop was the place to go, and the owner there took one look at the picture and grabbed the needles and yarn that would work, and told me what to do. In less that a day, I had created this gorgeous scarf.

The pattern is simple. I used US size 36 needles, 4 strands at a time of cascades eco yarn.

If you have a shorter neck or don’t want it super chunky, I’d suggest trying 2 or 3 strands at a time. Then you can cast on 12-15 stitches, depending on how wide you want it, and just keep knitting in rows back and forth until it’s long enough to loop over twice. Then sew the ends together to make a big infinity scarf.

And if you want to wear it a more modern way – this works too.

    Hi! I’m so excited to try this scarf. It looks so great! I’m not sure any of my stores carry Cascade Yarn and I’m going to a fiber festival this weekend. Could you tell me the weight and perhaps I could pick up some homespun stuff instead? How much did you need? Thanks so much!

      Thank you! I used Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool® but I can’t for the life of me remember the exact color. Just a note that if you are sensitive to wool at all, it IS pretty itchy.
