Finished Cowl

Very soft, very cushy, very warm.

Notice how the wrong side of the cowl looks like large sections of knit woven together.

I finally finished my first cowl. I do have a fleece cowl that I use a lot in the woods when it's really cold. This knitted cowl will be prettier and could be worn around town.

Quick to knit, but I couldn't knit this while chatting. I don't know if other people count lace in a different way than I do, but I was counting in my head....and definitely got confused if I stopped mid-row.

Needles: US 8 wooden double-pointed needles
Yarn: 1.5 oz (.85 of a skein) of Princess by Classic Elite
40% merino, 28% viscose, 10% cashmere, 15% nylon, 7% angora
Color 3432
Pattern: Lush-ious Swirl Cowl by Linda Frydl

We're having an unusually warm winter so far, so I've barely had the chance to use my new cowl. I'll bet I'll get a chance to use it soon though!

How pretty. I love that pattern. I'm like you, I have to count if doing such a pattern, but always keep a "simple" project nearby when I want to be sociable. :)

Beautiful cowl, they are wonderful to wear. I just added two more to my coat closet basket. Knitting them is addictive!

Great pattern and color! Here's hoping for some good cold weather so you can show it off. I know it's going to look fabulous.

We are having avery cold day for VA. Yesterday it was also very windy!

Of all the things I have ever knit in my life I have worn my cowl the most. It is a scarf. It is a bit of color. It is a face warmer for dogwalking.

What a beautiful cowl! It looks very complicated. I can understand needing to be able to concentrate while you knit it. I love cowls. They're cute, warm, and easy to wear....no long ends to fall off or into things. Enjoy!
