Striped Cowl Complete


I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am that this cowl is off the needles.  I love the way it looks and I'm glad I knit it up.  All I need now is a crisp breeze and some cooler weather.


I started this when I needed something simple to knit while the wedding stress increased.  Once the wedding was over this simple knit became super boring for me.  So half of the project I loved knitting and the second half I was wishing that knitting was over.


Ravelry notes are here.

  1. The gold stripes really set off the gradient; it looks great! Here's hoping it brings some nice cool fall weather!

  13. Shame there was no pleasure in the making, but it does look really good. The gold stripe looks brilliant to separate the stripes.
