FO Friday: Another cowl!


Yeah, I know ... I'm cowl crazy! I need another cowl like I need a hole in my head, but I just can't stop knitting them ... this is my finished Twining cowl test knit. I can't say enough good things about this pattern--the designer wrote a flawless pattern that's easy to follow, and has details that make the knitting easier and intuitive (like matching a knit one below detail on a knitting round, and a purl one below on a purling round). Love that! And it's reversible. This is my first real reversible knit, and it was super fun!


Pattern: twining cowl (link to my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: Western Sky Knits Willow DK (colorway: Lilacs)
Needles: size 5 Knit Picks Caspian interchangeables
Mods: Used size 5 needles throughout instead of switching to larger needles.


And now I'm making speedy progress on the other test knit on my needles, Brandy's city lights beanie. I only have four more "arrows" to go!

  4. What a cozy cowl! I'm firmly in the camp that you can never have too many cowls. They are such a great winter accessory & easy to wear! Loving the colors for the City Lights Beanie! Thanks for linking up :)

  6. so beautiful!! And hey, you always need another cowl. Winter is coming eventually, right? You've got to have options when that cold weather hits and you're tired of wearing the same old coat all the time.
