Roundabout CowlFebruary 5, 2013
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.
