They say that the cowl is the new scarf and I can see why.  It takes about the same time to knit, but you don’t have to have all the bulk to wrap around yourself.

I found this amazing pattern on another knitting blog, SourCherries.  Her cowl was made with a merino/cashmere/nylon blend but I opted for a wool/acrylic blend.  My daughter will be wearing it and with her being 10, I wanted it to be washable.

I love not having to carry patterns with me and this pattern is a very simple one.  It’s one you can easily commit to memory, and knit it up whenever you’re out.  I am wondering how pretty this would look made out of a black yarn, larger needle size and then thread a very narrow ribbon through the eyelets.  I’m sure that you could dress this up very easily.  Oh the possibilities…
