Oh hey, you lookin' at me? Me and my fabulous and cozy cowl? Yea, I know you want it too. It's super chunky, oh so soft and I love it. I don't think I've told you all yet, but have been working at a yarn shop in San Francisco called Atelier Yarns. The 20 year old store is now owned by Amanda, who designs patterns for the yarn we sell.
Well, when Amanda whipped out this simple yet awesome cowl I had that feeling we all get when you see something you want to make rightthisveryinstant - fixation, obesssion, a casual sensation to cast on.
Atelier Shop Pattern #195
Needles: US 9
Yarn: Di.Ve Autmno, 5 balls
The yarn has a slight stripe to which adds to the dimension of the knit and purl sections. It's like a giant Wurm. The best part - the cowl is so stretchy that you can wear it as a capelet too.
I am giving this cowl to my best friend Julie who just became a new mom. I figure it's one of those easy, throw over your head and get warm fast type of knits! No need to think any harder than that! And hello, easy holiday gift - done and done. You know me and Cowls - Obsessed.
You can order the yarn and pattern (#195) which is free with yarn purchase by calling Atelier Yarns at 415-771-1550 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
