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!

  5. It's lovely! Red is my favorite autumn/winter color, probably because of the absence of color once the leaves fall!
