Knit Project #4: Cinched Head Wrap and Mini Cowl in Lemongrass

I'm on a roll! Loving this super bulky yarn because it works up so quickly. Also getting a hang of circular knitting.  


LOVE these colors together. In different lights, this lemongrass color looks more greenish or yellowish. What a pop of color against any neutral like winter whites, charcoals, black, or navy!



This time I practiced getting a more invisible join for knitting in a round, switching colors more seamlessly (although it can be hidden by the cinched part), and binding/casting off more loosely so one side isn't tighter than the other side.


knit rows in a round

cinched head wrap doubles as a mini cowl, love the reverse side too!
