Cowly

Delicious: that's what I'd like to say about my fab new cowl. There was a time when I thought these amputated turtlenecks were weird but I am a convert. I love my cowl.


Pattern: Cowl from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
Materials: Cashmere sock yarn from Hipknits, purchased at Loop in London, size 4 circular Addi Natura needles.
Modifications: Yarn substitution.

This is the perfect transition scarf when you don't need your neck fully swaddled but want a little something to keep out the wind.

And just in case I haven't raved enough about the yarn, let me say it again: love the color, love the hand, love the post-wash feel of this yarn. Plus, it goes on and on and on - look at this wad I have left! Does a girl need two cowls? She just might...
