In need of a literally last-minute gift? I swatched, cast on, and finished this cowl all within 4 hours. Knit with bulky yarn, the finished cowl is cozy and warm. The CC drawstring allows the wearer to tighten or loosen the cowl for added or decreased warmth. Perfect for active friends and family members!
Sample shown was knit with 3 skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky Naturals: 2 in "Porcupine" (col. 1003), and 1 in "Jasmine" (col. 1213). Knit on size US 15/ 10mm circular needles, 24"/ 61cm long. Pattern includes both US Standard and metric sizing.
10 stitches and 12 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette
I love socks, lace, and all sorts of "traditional" knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
