An easy cowl

Sometimes an easy and quick to make project is inmensely satisfying, don't you all agree?

I have been wanting a knitted cowl for a while and I remenbered that over at knitlit I had seen a free pattern. Not that you really need a pattern, but I liked the looks of the cowl she made and that way I didn't have to do any thinking ;-).

This pattern uses a bulky yarn and I usually don't purchase bulky yarns after all bulky yarns make bulky garments and most of the time that's not a look we want. However I did have a beautiful Manos del Uruguay remmant that I had used to make a hat for my oldest before I started blogging and also I had yarn from this mustard sweater (Ravelry link) I thought they looked great together, I bought 15 size (US) needles and got to it. I added a crochet border of the mustard color on top for color balance.

So there you have it, you could make this as your first knitting project, so easy!


  1. Makes me want to learn to knit!

  2. It looks so nice and warm and perfect for our weather.
    The colors are also very nice :)


I love hearing from you!
