Another Cowl Complete


I find myself wanting more and more cowls to wear this winter.  They are warm and easy to loop for extra warmth.  Yet I only own a few compared to the endless shawls I own, I'm not complaining, I'm stating a fact.  I'm in a cowl wearing mood this winter.


This pattern is a delight to knit.  Just keep in mind you need about 320 yards, 300 yards is quite skimpy.  This is the second time I've knit this pattern.  I decided to go up one needle size and bought lots of yarn.  I love the way this cowl feels and drapes.

  1. Your cowl looks both beautiful and warm! Even though spring is approaching, March is a fickle month, so plenty of warmth and beauty are still needed!

  2. Perfect on you Karen, just beautiful! I just cast on a baby blanket Erin wanted me to knit for a friend, but I really would love to cast on your cowl. Yes, I think I should cast on ;)

  9. lovely!!! (I'm a cowl convert, too....even find myself trying to loop a shawl more 'cowl-like'!) Happy color, too!

  10. That's a very nice cowl! I only own one cowl, and I think the reason is the one I knit is way too bulky. It sort of put me off them. But I need to give them another chance. Yours looks so much more user friendly than mine! :-)

    I like these bright colors on you! That does look like a fun pattern. You know I love cowls...I was just looking at yarn trying to decide which color for my next cowl.

  14. That is lovely! How difficult would you rate it (keeping in mind I'm a really real beginner!) :-)

    1. If you know how to cast on, decrease, and increase then you could do this pattern. If you are a really really real beginner I'd say start with something much more simple before tackling this. I'd rate this pattern as a confident beginner to intermediate knitter.

  20. The colour and pattern you used are beautiful !!! You have inspired me... I think i will try knitting myself a cowl. I'm getting tired of trying to learn the 100 ways of how to loop my scarves (LOL)

  23. Hi pretty lady! Love the cowl. I knit one for my SIL's bday In January and was sad to give it away. I think it's a sign I need to knot one for myself ;-)
