Chili Pepper Cowl


Over the weekend I finished this cowl and since then I've been wearing it.  A dear friend gave me this skein for Christmas and I knew I wanted to knit with a pop of color during January. 

I shortened some of the sections of the cowl since I only had 300 yards out of the 500 yards required.  I love how the cowl turned out and it fits nicely.


I am sure I will be knitting yet another one since this is only my second time.  The first cowl became a Christmas gift.  Someone asked if this would be a great knit for beginners.  If you know how to knit - purl - cast on and off - increase and decrease - and have skills for using youtube tutorials, I think this could be a great project for sampling different skills.

Ravely notes

  7. I like your shortened version too. I find if a cowl gets too tall I feel like I'm being strangled but that is just me. That chili pepper should keep you warm this month and brighten up any gray winter day. Very nice finish.
