Bundle up during a cold winter day with this easy DIY cowl project. The thick texture of this cowl makes it a great DIY winter accessory, and it is perfect for layering.

From the Blogger: "This simply huge cowl has been named after the giant Gymir, who in Norse mythology was the giant whose daughter, Gerðr, ultimately married the god Freyr. This easy giant cowl project is the third part in a series about extreme knitting, including posts on how to make yourself huge broom stick knitting needles and also how I prepared my roving to be able to knit with it. The knitting needles used are size 28 mm."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I was curious to see what yarn the designer used for this cowl. Turns out she used roving that she had herself prepared into yarn. I don't have that or any jumbo yarn but I think since you use size 50 needles I could substitute two strands of T-shirt yarn, or maybe recycled sari yarn, or even homemade fabric yarn held together.

Not gonna lie, I definitely clicked on this for the Norse mythology reference. I regret nothing. This pattern looks so easy and it incorporates my faves about knitting-- big yarn and big needles. The fact that the blogger knit it in my fave color as well is just a great plus. Thanks!

This is so easy. You just need the big size needles. A rib pattern always seems to work well with the jumbo yarn and big needles. I think it adds that extra texture. Cowls always come in handy. They add a bit of warmth and also that extra bit of detail to an outfit. Thank you.
