MAKING UP 1 Steam block pieces to encourage them to lay flat and make seaming easier. 2 Weave in all tail ends carefully if you’ve not already done so. 3 When seaming use a new piece of MC yarn for each seam. Do not seam using cast on/cast off tails. 4 Place front and back right sides together and join shoulders. 5 Lay out flat and place centre of sleeve at shoulder seam. Seam top of sleeve. Still with RS together, seam sleeve and side seams on each side. 6 Weave in ends. 7 Turn right sides

Using 25mm needles not turn. **Row 1: Knit, pulling working yarn across back of work. Do not turn. Slide stitches back along needle to knit them again. Repeat from ** until you’ve used up your first ball of yarn. Join in second ball and repeat from ** again until you’ve used up the second ball. Carefully remove needles and pull yarn end through rem stitches and fasten off.
MAKING UP 1 Weave in all ends. 2 Make two pom-poms, one for each end, by wrapping the left over grey yarns from the cowl around your hand (see facing page). Tie the centre knot with a finer matching strong yarn (such as cotton DK), leaving long tails for attaching later. 3 Cut the loopy your pom pom. 4 Fluff out the ends of the yarn and trim the pom pom to make it even. 5 Attach by pulling the yarn ends into the top of the icord and then fastening them in a knot. 6 Weave in remaining ends. See step-by-step photos above for a great way to tie a long narrow scarf!
