Game Knitting Cowl


This past weekend was Knit Fit and I went to a Game Knitting night run by Lee Meredith. Game Knitting is a lot like a drinking game where you watch a movie, and you do something every time something occurs from a list of things. We watched Say Anything, and I chose to make a super bulky cowl using Rowan Big Wool that has been hanging out in my stash for years.


My goal was to have my project be finished by the end of the a movie, and a super bulky cowl with eyelets was the perfect project for that. I used 9mm circular needles and cast on enough stitches to fill my needles, and every time something happened, I made a yo and k2tog. I cast on while Lee explained the game, and I bound off during the credits. The eyelets ended up totally random and chaotic looking. The finished cowl is pretty fun.

  1. That sounds like a total blast!

  2. Such a fun idea! And I love the resulting cowl. Super fun!

  3. That sounds like so much fun! I bet if you added a drinking game you would also get a progressively looser knit, too. Something to try!

  4. That sounds like a fun game!

  5. Sounds like a blast! The eyelet pattern turned out very cool too. What was the movie and what was the event that you would do yo-k2tog for?

    1. We watched Say Anything, and we had a big list of things to do stuff at.

  6. I’ve been thinking about randomized eyelets in knitting before, if it ends up looking like a design detail or like a newbie dropping stitches, but this looks deliberate and very cool! I love the effect, and especially how it is related to a movie, so it reminds you of the story every time you wear it. Very fun idea.
