Welcome Back

Today I’d like to share a picture of the second cowl I knitted.

The pattern was from Cowl’d and Frosty Morning, I messed up a bit with counting the rows and it got a bit taller than the pattern intended. This was a happy accident though, as it is very cozy and ideal to snuggle down into :)

Hope you like it, the yarn is James Brett Marble Chunky in colour MC19 which is amethyst, its very difficult to get it to photograph the colour correctly.

Welcome Back

Last month I mentioned that I was going to try knitting my first cowl. Today I’d like to share a picture of the finished piece.

My First Cowl

My First Cowl

  • The pattern I used (but recalculated the stitches too big ooops) was from Sixsevenone’s blog.
  • The yarn I used was James Brett Chunky; in colour MC6.

The yarn was a joy to use, especially on my new Knit Pro: Basix; birch wood circulars, that I reviewed earlier this month. The yarn colours self stripe which give a pretty result and I managed to get this finished just in time for the cold snap. I had my hair cut very short this time and have found winter decidedly chilly.

Hope you like it, try making a cowl, they are great for keeping out the drafts and less bother than a scarf in use. If you don’t have the best dexterity the good news is they don’t take too long to make either ;) Oh dear, perhaps it will be another pattern I’ll use for making Christmas gifts, they’ll be calling me Mrs Weasly (Harry Potter) next.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
