Designed by myself, this chunky cowl is part of a series of cowls I'm doing inspired by New York, my home state. They are designed to be comfortable, fun to knit, and perfect to wear with a stylish wool coat or a denim jacket. The Long Island Cowl was named after the beautiful stretch of island that stretches out to the East from New York City. The cowl reminds me of Long Island for 2 reasons... it's long! And also it took me about 5 hours to knit this cowl... the same amount of time it takes to drive out ot the tip of Long Island and back to Manhattan. Wear it single OR double looped, depending on your outfit and the temperature outside. Either way you'll love the warmth of this chunky, versatile cowl. Suggested yarns: Anything super bulky. Needle size: 13 (9.0mm) YES you may sell items made from this pattern. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY VERY basic knitting skills GAUGE approximately 9 sts + 14 rows per 4 inches.

I adore knitting and crocheting. I don't understand how people can sit and watch a movie and NOT be knitting or crocheting! Such wasted opportunity. =) My mother taught me how to do both right about the time I started Kindergarten. And here I am 40 years later, designing my own patterns. Although I still do buy quite a few from fellow designers! In my spare time I enjoy (duh!) knitting and crocheting, reading my Nook, walking... spare time is limited these days with nursing classes. If only I could find a way to knit while I study...
