Ode to Cowls

cowl love

I’ve started a love affair with cowls recently. I can’t get enough of them. I look through photos, check out patterns, browse magazines, searching for the perfect one.

I seem to be drawn to the chunky, cozy kind – but I think this is due to the fact that winter is approaching. I can certainly see light, lacy cowls in soft pinks and pale yellow come spring!

I knitted this one last year — my first cowl attempt. I still wear it today.

2 skiens Patons Shetland Chunky (really inexpensive but I love the steel grey colour, which is why I chose it).

CO 52 stitches on 10 mm needles. Knit in garter stitch until it fits across shoulders. 

I made this one for the shop a versatile wrap in vibrant plum chunky wool with 3 buttons that can be styled in many different ways. 

And finally, my Mille Cowl, which is being gifted this Christmas to my dear sister-in-law in HK. This is a luxury yarn for me. Soft and squishy with muted pinks, mauves and greys.

Lang Mille Colori Big (heaven yarn!)

CO 80 on 10mm circular needles, knit in rib pattern (k2, p2) entirely.

Just like my Elves, plan to see more Cowls in the future here!
