Pattern: My Kind of Town Cowl
Yarn:Belle Valleé Wools 4-Ply 100% Wool (thanks to Canary Sanctuary for the yarn!)
Notes: Such a simple pattern, so much immediate love!! I’ve worn this cowl pretty much every day since I finished it- and it only took me a couple days to knit it. Not everyone would love my yarn choice- it’s not the softest wool in the world, but my sensitive skin still loves wool. Me and wool, we’re tight.
One of the best things the designer did was include lots of photos on the different ways it can be worn. Because when you’re first finished, it just looks like a garter stitch tube, and that’s not particularly inspiring. The pictures above and the picture below show my two favourite ways of wearing it:
(This one is the way I wear it with my coat all the time, and then I pull it over my shoulders if I’m indoors and still a bit chilly).
I can’t say enough good things about this- it’s the perfect quick knit, and a fabulous beginner project if you know some new knitters who need a simple and satisfying project to begin with. And if you are looking for quick holiday gifts, I can’t recommend these enough!
