Bring a bit of rainbow magic to your autumn wardrobe with this stash-busting cowl. It’s the perfect project for practising magic knots – simply raid your stash for yarn scraps and knot them together in a rainbow effect to create your own unique magic ball.

The cowl’s stylish diagonal stripes are quick and easy to work, with colour changes that appear as if by magic. We used all-acrylic DK yarn scraps for a cosy feel and a consistent look, but you could vary the look however you like – try using random yarn scraps in various weights and textures, or alter the colour theme with shades of one colour arranged from light to dark to light. Enjoy experimenting!”
