My Foray into Designing
I have been reviewing stitch dictionaries, looking for a group of techniques that will translate well into a cowl.
Cowls are my favorite way to stay warm without scarf tails. I have knit a bunch of very simple ones for gifts, charity drives and my own use. Currently I keep two in the car in different weights and two at the door with my jackets. Most of the use very little yarn and can be knit in weights from bulky, like a Malabrigo Rasta one, to laceweight, like Pretty Thing by the Yarn Harlot.
My current pattern, in test mode, is a ribbed eyelet one that I just finished and will be making it available on Ravelry once the test knitting is complete.
