The Holey Cowl

I saw this pattern and immediately decided I needed to make one. For myself. I have been on a neck-warmer kick lately. And this is just one of several I have made for myself as well as the kids. Not all of them have turned out well, but this one's a keeper.
You can find the pattern for the Holey Cowl here.
The designer wears hers kind of like how mine is in the picture above. But I prefer it flipped the other way as in the picture below.
For my cowl, I just used a big skein of a worsted-weight yarn that I had in my stash (ie., not organic cotton). I also used straight needles and sewed the end up (as opposed to using circulars as suggested in the pattern).
Overall, I really like my new cowl and am happy to report it's already gotten at least three wears. (Though no comments yet from friends. Darn. I wonder if they know I knitted it? Or maybe they do and...eh-hem...don't like my style.) Anyhoo, I always feel accomplished when I get a project done. One that I think looks good enough to wear. Woo-hoo!

  1. Sweet!! I kind of like the first way of wearing the cowl, but I think that is because I like things to look haphazard, that way no one notices when I am just sort of messy ;)
