After finishing the knit hat (on small needles), I rewarded myself with a treat: a lovely nubby green cowl scarf, knit on size 13 needles, just for me. It was so easy to knit and such a joy – it just flew by! Two short nighttime knitting sessions and a brief wrap-up at Story time – and I had a new cowl scarf. I had made a couple of cowls for holiday gifts and really was looking forward to making myself one.
I found the yarn at JoAn’s while visiting my family over the holidays. It was just so bright green and thick – I knew I had to make something with it. I cast on 70 stitches and then knit in the round. The second row I purled, but then all the rest were knits. So simple.
In hindsight, I would have cast on 60 stitches and then it would have been a bit taller. That’s what the original pattern called for, but I had different results with each of the cowls I knitted, mostly because the yarn was different. Oh well. I like it anyways. This one gets to stay with me…
Okay,so you may have noticed the green present throughout the house. What I can I say, I like green.
