The other day I was using my skein of Queensland Collection Superstar yarn as a photo prop. I thought to myself, “This is pretty yarn. I should knit it already.”
A fun cowl seemed the way to go.
Superstar 2 1/2 Hour Cowl Pattern
Size 4″ tall x 19″ circ
Yarn: Queensland Collection Superstar yarn, 1 skein
Needles: US13 circular (or size needed to obtain gauge)

Join to work in the round, being careful not to twist. Place marker to designate beginning of round.
Work three rounds in K4, P4 rib
Round 4 (cable round): *C4F, P4, repeat from * around
Work three rounds in K4, P4 rib followed by a Cable round twice more (12 rows total. 3 cable twists).
Bind off in K4, P4 Rib
Weave in ends
It also seems to work as a head band/ear warmer, if you’re into that, but I couldn’t get a good picture of it worn that way.
I did, however, manage to get Samson to model it for me!
