Keep warm with a Cowl

Well, the forecast is calling for snow this weekend so I'm getting ready by making myself something to keep warm.

This is the fourth video in my series of how to make and use what I call a spool knitter.  If you're new to Etcetorize you might want to head over to the tutorials page to get caught up or you can just click here let learn how to make your own knitter.


Go here to learn how to cast on and off and the basic knit stitch.


And here is where you can learn to purl.


And in this new video I'm going to show you how to use everything we've learned so far to create a beautiful cowl.

DIY Cowl, easy knitting, spool knitting, loom knitting, easy crafting, DIY scarf


Hope you enjoy! 

I picked up some super duper neat wool at the Creativ Festival last weekend and am hoping to do another fun video soon showing you how to work with it. It's not like anything I've ever seen before so make sure to stay tuned!


Have a great weekend everyone!  Don't forget to come back on Monday to link up and share your fun creations~

Hi Tamara! Your cowl looks great! I have been over at your blog learning how to make a spool knitter and how to "knit" on it and becoming your newest follower. You have such great ideas. I saw your post over at "Weekend Blog Reading".
