Knitting Cowls

I'm obsessed with cowls right now.  They're so easy to make, and I think the fact that I create them in the round helps break up some of the monotony of making scarves.  

Single loop around the neck...

I had this worsted Malabrigo on some needles for a bolero that I'd been stuck on for a while (make that... a year).  It required some weird stitch that I just couldn't get the hang of.  When I found the pattern for this GAP-tastic Cowl, I decided it was time to frog the bolero and whip this baby up.

Or doubled up. Nice and snuggly.

It was a ridiculously easy seed stitch pattern.  Just knit one, purl one, all the way around until I made it about 15 inches wide.  The length is perfect to wear with a single wrap around your neck or doubled up.   It took about one and a half balls of the Malabrigo and I was able to knit it while catching up on my tv watching. Perfect.

This post will be participating in the following Linky parties:
