Once I’d finished the cowl, I had a fair amount of the yarn left from the second ball so I decided to make a matching headband.
It’s in half double crochet too, starting out at 9 stitches wide, increasing in a couple of places to a peak of 13 in the centre, and decreasing back down again for the other side. Narrowest measures 4.5″ and widest measures 6.5″. Circumference is about 20″ once the ends are overlapped and buttoned.
Circumference of the cowl, which I didn’t mention earlier, is about 26″ and it’s about 8.5″ wide.
I had about 5 metres left of the two balls of yarn once the cowl and headband were finished, which I thought was pretty good going. I didn’t want to be left with anything.
Super bulky can vary so much, I’ll note down here the ball band gauge in case you need to know – on 9mm needles, knitted gauge is 9sts/12rows to 4″, and recommended hook size is 9mm/US M13. No crochet gauge is given but mine is about 8sts in hdc/7rows to 4″. Loops and Threads Cozy Wool.
