The Full Runaround
I love to run, especially in cooler weather, but I really hate the pain that comes from cold ears in the wind. Then again, I sweat easily, and once I’ve hit my stride – well, too hot can be even worse than too cold!
This long loop can be wrapped to form a headband and cowl in one. The yarn, a smooth and bouncy cotton/wool blend, is perfect for keeping you warm but not sweaty, and as you warm up you can lower the loop around your neck for a looser fit that still warms while allowing air to circulate. If even that gets too much, just drop it down into one long loop that won’t get in the way! Adding extra buttons gives you the option of fitting it more closely around just your neck and chin.
The loop is knitted using a double strand of Lang Classico; use the leftovers singly for Runaround Mitts (in a related, but not identical stitch pattern – this mini e-book includes both patterns) to complete the set. You are unlikely to need more yarn than the 4 balls listed but may need less.
Instructions are given for a standard adult size, but with full instructions for customising to get a perfect individual fit. The mitts are sized for toddler, child and adult.
