Pucker up Cowl Pattern

194_595.jpg

I bought this yarn with every intent of making something for the fella. But then I got sick and needed something effortless to work on while laying in bed watching an entire season of Breaking Bad. So now I have a cowl. Cowls are one of those things, much like shawls and fingerless gloves, that knitters love, but I'm not sure how much the general population embraces them. My coworker, however, told me I did not look stupid wearing it, that they were trendy right now, and people call them infinity scarves. So there you go - one unverified source suggesting that I am hip.

Free cowl knitting pattern

This pattern is really easy, uses only one skein, and knits up quickly. In other words: perfect last minute Christmas gift.

If I were going to make another one, I'd try casting on 100 stitches and do three repeats of the body to get a snugglier cowl. If anyone gives that a shot, I'd love to see it.
