Machine knitting reversible cowl on LK100
Here is a video of my 3 years old doing machine knitting. If he can do it, everyone can do it. After he knitted up a rectangle piece, I decided to make it into a cowl.
The process is very simple. Knit 2 rectangles, seam end to end with kitchener stitch (or 3 needle bind off), then sew along the top and bottom edges of the cowl. Done. It is reversible and can be used as a earwarmer.
