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.
