Keeping cozy with my new cowl

Boy, has this been a cold winter so far!  Brrrrrrrrrrr.

My latest design, Cozy Slanted Cowl, is free for the month of February.  Happy Valentine’s day!  Here is a link to download the pattern even if you aren’t a member of the fantastic Ravelry community.

I have made a few of these cowls and they are really nice to have around your neck and the softer the yarn the better!  While the cowl in the pattern was made using Loops & Threads Charisma yarn from Michael’s, any chunky yarn would make a nice cowl.  For me, there’s something relaxing about having a soft cowl rub up against my cheeks in the cold.

Honey Cowl is oh so sweet!

Well, I finished my cowl and it’s very soft and warm. I made this cowl taller than my other ones because after you wear them for a few hours, they sort of “fall” and scrunch down. I chose this yarn because of all the different colors in it so it should go nice with the variety of sweaters and turtlenecks I have.

Here it is lying flat. I used a seed stitch border instead of a ribbed border for something different.
