My husband saw me knitting this cowl and said, "That reminds me of those licorice candies we had as kids." I agreed, so he looked up the name of those candies. They are "All sorts." Dumb name. So I thought they looked like black-eyed Peeps (those marshmallow things you get at Easter). Also lame. Then, I was knitting at our local coffee shop and 4-yr old Zia walked by and said, That looks like a pink Cheetah." Bingo! Thank you, Zia, for the perfect name!
The cowl looks doubleknit, but it is not. You can make it as long as you want. Join for a cowl. Twist and join for a moebius cowl, or just add fringe to the ends for a scarf. Very easy colorwork and, best of all, the inside won't show so NO FLOATS!

I am Deborah. I am fortunate to be able to spend my days doing the things I love most in life: knitting, sewing, designing, cooking, baking, reading and writing. I am trying to learn, with an open mind, as much as I can from this life without having to repeat my mistakes or the mistakes of my parents.
Some people see a gorgeous sunset and photograph it. Others paint it. I knit it. Fiber and fabric are my media. Knitting the sunset makes it mine.
