This is a silly little project that was the perfect use for an unknown amount of handspun yarn.
This yarn was an early handspun yarn of mine that I discovered in my stash hand-wound around a toilet paper roll 🙂
It was originally a braid of merino wool hand-dyed by Fleece Artist. The yarn is a 3-ply (navajo ply).
I was hoping to have enough yarn to knit a hat, but I ran out! So, I cast off. It turned out to be a smallish neckwarmer/cowl and can also double as a headband of sorts.
Amber graciously modeled this knit both ways:
Handspun yarn Points:
3 points: 100 yds (approx.) so, 300 yds of singles, 1 point: plying, 1 point: spun on a drop spindle
1 point: cowl, 1 point: 100 yds, 1 point: stash
8 points: Total
The hicky dicky is a very versatile accessory. If you can think of any other uses for it, please share them in the comments. We’d love to hear from you!! 🙂
