Since my mother is visiting me, she has now introduced me to knitting. To spend her time constructively here with me, she decided to start a cowl for my dearest friend. For this we first went knitting-needles-shopping (because, guess what, I have a whole range of crochet hooks but not a single pair knitting needles 😦 ).
This project was inspired by a simple free pattern available on Michaels’ website. This cowl involved cable stitch and was a little hard for a beginner (equals ‘me’) to get. But before you know it was made and blocked into a beautiful cowl.
Red heart soft yarn – Teal (256 yd.)
US size 7 (4.5mm) knitting needles
Finished Dimensions: 9 X 26 in.
Modifications to the pattern: The original pattern is that of a scarf. In order to be able to finish it sooner and to get a classier look we shortened it and made it into a cowl. We thought of stitching up the ends of the cowl, however the idea of connecting them with a button gave a really nice look.
