Red Bird Cowl Complete
I finished this scarf turned into a cowl last week and already gifted it to my son when I met him for lunch. He requested something in red. Originally I was thinking scarf but then I suggested a cowl to him and he liked the idea. I found some red wool while on the mad hunt for "red". I wanted a blackish red and that doesn't seem to be too popular out there or I'm not shopping the right places.
I didn't want to order on line because red is an unreliable color on computer screens (at least for me). So once I had the wool then I hunted for a pattern. This lovely scarf pattern popped up in my search and I liked the repetitive design.
Unfortunately one skein of sock yarn doesn't make a long scarf, another strong reason that I sewed the ends by kitchener stitch. Easy peasy and he loves the cowl!
