I love knitting and wearing cowls. Why?
- Traditional scarves are annoying to loop and they never stay in place. Cowls are simple since they’re circular.
- Cowls are easy and quick to make. Scarves always take much longer to knit than I think they will.
- Cowls are versatile. They can be worn loosely on cool days or wrapped around for extra warmth when it’s cold.
I had a hard time figuring out what stitch pattern to use with this yarn. I tried cables, but thought the pattern looked too busy. I tried various types of lace patterns, but didn’t like them either. Finally, I settled on the simple texture and lines created with only knit and purl stitches. The pattern is simple and can be finished rather quickly.
