Birthday Cowl

Birthday Cowl

Birthday Cowl

Pattern: Birthday Cowl
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy, In Vino Veritas, less than 1 skein
Needles: US #8 / 16″
Thoughts: The Birthday Cowl is a great (and easy!) pattern. This was my first experience using Dream in Color, and I really like that it has slight variegation without pooling.

Expect to see some more cowls in the weeks ahead! I have already completed a third cowl (yet to be photographed) and I am planning to start a fourth one this weekend…can you tell that I am going cowl crazy over here? And in the midst of 95 degree weather, too!

    Very pretty! However, in this weather, I don’t know how you could stand to put it on to take a modeled shot!

    What a beautiful cowl! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Despite the fact that they’re months away from being worn or enjoyed, cowls really are the perfect summertime knit, because they’re so small. No lapful of yarn to make you sweat. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    very pretty!! i can see how cowls would be addictive, and even though it’s a winter accessory, it’s a perfect summer knit (small, portable, light) =)

    I started this one in the same yarn, and couldn’t keep my attention focused, so I ripped back. I wanna try again though – it is so pretty! Yours looks great ๐Ÿ™‚

    Very cool! I can’t find my cowl that I was working on since I moved! Dream in Color looks really nice. I see Knitique sells it, any other place online you’d recommend?
