DIY love knots cowl

a cowl so pretty I'm tempted to make it in every color!

To make this scarf/cowl , I experimented with my spool knitter (Caron Embellish-Knit! Machine Kit) - again.

This time I made an icord out of a very thin mohair yarn, and the yarn obtained with the spool knitter is bulky and extremely soft.

I crocheted the scarf with a 9mm crochet hook: the cowl weight 110 grams: very light, but warm, with a lace feel... lovely!

I pinned this video tutorial over the summer, and tried this stitch with different yarn.
This stitch is very pretty, but in my opinion looks good only with bulky yarn.

Because I wanted a cowl, at the end I stitched the two sides to make the tube.
All around the making of the scarf is really fast... the spool knitting... not really (about 6 hours... really!!)
