Or in this case, alpaca! I knitted up this asymmetrical cowl in an evening of T.V. watching, and man do I love it. The free pattern is a really simple one, and I modified it a little bit by using K1 P1 ribbing instead of Garter stitch. Some nights making up an entire pattern on my own takes too much brain power, so I like to let another designer do the thinking for me.
All you need to make this cowl is some super bulky yarn ( I used Yarn Bee Effortless Superbulky, which is a nice Alpaca Acrylic blend that you can find at Hobby Lobby), some size US13 (9.0mm) knitting needles, and a yarn needle for weaving ends and sewing the asymmetrical seam. This pattern didn’t even use up the entire skein. In fact I could probably get another one out of it!
Check out the pattern here on Ravelry, and to make my modified version simply work in K1, P1 ribbing and always slip the last 1st st. of the row. I also seamed it a bit differently, more in the middle as you can see in the last photo.
