Cowls are great for when you need to keep the chill off your neck, but don't want to wear a scarf. This cowl was inspired by the color of the yarn I used, which reminded me of the beautiful fall colors. The stitch pattern used in this cowl, the Acorn Cable, also made me think of fall. This is a fairly quick knit - you can start it Friday and wear it to work on Monday. You can use any color of yarn you like.

After seeing a woman knit on the bus, I decided that I wanted to learn to knit also. So I did, and now I have my own knitting blogs, how-to videos - all about knitting!
