i heart fridays: chunky cowls

garter rib cowl

Last Fall I was really into cowls, and this year is no exception. I’m still in love with cowls of all kinds. I love the versatility of them; transforming into a scarf, neck warmer, or hood whenever you need them to!

I especially have a weakness for chunky knit cowls. Fast and easy, usually whipping up one of these in an evening and out the door the next chilly day. I made the above black garter stitch cowl for a co-worker who has always encouraged my knitting pursuits. It’s one of my faves. One day, when I have a little more free time, I’ll write out the pattern.

But here’s a couple more chunky knit cowls that I’m coveting right now:

:: Jane Richmond‘s Marian is one of my all-time faves. Doesn’t it look super cozy? Perfect for Canadian winters!


:: and this twisted Tuesday Night Cowl by Susan of Knitting as Fast as I Can. I love the sea-blue colour in the version pictured, too!

Don’t I have you convinced now that cowls are the BEST thing ever?! Grab a cowl, it’s chilly at night around here already!
