Bulky yarns are truly in this season. Every catalouge or store I've seen and been to has a vast array of bulky scarves and cowls. Bulky yarns scream cozy, warmth and for a knitter - instant gratification. The temperature in the northeast has gone from 75 to 55 in the last two days. It seems as if we are skipping Fall completely.
I find it a little funny that I'm such a cowl maker this season. In the past, the ones I've tried just didn't seem to lay right or they weren't snug enough to keep my neck warm. I purposefully made this cowl oversized so it can be scrunched down much like the Luxe Cowl. I think that's the biggest difference between my older "fail" cowls and my new cowls - the scrunch factor.
I call this my Snow Cowl.
