Repeat rows 1 & 2 until you have 5-6 yards of yarn left and BO.
Before you begin,
- Buy a pair of #8 Clover wooden needles at L&B. They’re inexpensive ($4.79 I think) and THE ONLY way to knit successfully with Kidsilk Haze.
- Buy one 25 gram ball of Kidsilk Haze for one cowl or one ball of the super size (50 gram) Kidsilk Haze for two cowls.
- Look in your stash for a small ball of waste yarn (solid, light color works best) and a medium size crochet hook.
“Provisional cast on” sounds scary, but it’s very simple. With the waste yarn and crochet hook, make a slip knot and chain 39 stitches. Cut thread and pull through last chain. Turn the chain over so you can see the “bumps” on back side. Using crochet hook, pull Kidsilk Haze through the 4th or 5th chain from the end and put stitch on #8 knitting needle. This is your first stitch of the cowl. Continue to pick up stitches until you have 29 on the needle. There will be a few waste yarn stitches left over. Let them dangle.
Knit 3, *yarn over, purl 2 together, knit 5; repeat from * to last 5 stitches, then yarn over, purl 2 together, knit 3. Repeat this row until you have 42 inches.
- Carefully, unknot an end of the provisional cast on and gently pull the yarn out, putting the 29 live stitches on a spare needle. With something other than Kidsilk Haze, the waste yarn would rip out easily (like the old flour bags used to do), but Kidsilk Haze is reluctant to let go and has to be treated gently.
- Holding right sides of the cowl together and with a third #8 needle, do a 3-needle bind-off.

When both pieces are complete, fold each piece to find center (center is fold) place marker. You will need to measure the waist from each side of hips to center. This will determine where to place the apron on the waistband. On apron piece, from side to center fold, make gathers evenly on each side. Place and pin pieces together, matching center makers and stitch together. Now fold waist band over and whip stitch it closed. This makes the finished product tidy. The waistband is open where it is not joined to the apron making for a cute tie in the back.
