Roundabout Cowl

I’m finally getting around to posting about this fantastic cowl that I have had finished for a while.   It just took me forever to photograph it for some reason.  I couldn’t remember to accost my 16-year old son to have him model it, but I finally made it happen.  I must say, this is one of my favorite projects yet.  And it’s a free download on Ravelry!

This cowl is knit in just four colors.  It uses two colors at a time and you end up knitting four different sections, using two different color combinations each time. On Loop Knits, they show you some possible color combinations. I used some nice blue-greys in Quince Osprey, one of my favorite all time yarns. This is one warm cowl, when you wear it doubled up.  I love it.

This project was my brainless TV or movie knitting, where I don’t have to follow a pattern.  The only downside to this pattern is that it is not knit in the round, so there were the dreaded purls that I had to do.  But I got through them.  I did knit this on a long circular needle, which helped with the bulk of it.  You finish it up with a kitchener stitch.
