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!
