The Babs Cowl is elastic and loose-fitting, a perfect accessory to keep your neck warm on a breezy day. It is knitted in the round in a rib set off by a garter stitch that is very easy and fun to do and creates a beautiful rib. The nice part about these cowls is that they can be made with just one skein of yarn of approximately 100 yards.
I used this wonderful Chalet Alpaca yarn which is lusciously soft! I purchased one skein of this yarn without knowing what I wanted to make with it, but I had to have it. Touching this yarn is similar to putting your hand into a cloud. It is only in natural colors and I may have to locate some more to make a hat.

I started knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting and embroidery even before I started school. I don't even remember being taught to knit and crochet because I was so young, but my teachers were my mother and grandmother.
