easy striped cowl

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Well, I had to do a little bribing to get Charlie to model the easy striped cowl.  
I was looking for a quick cowl pattern that would suit a male and this is what I found. (Charlie doesn't think men should wear cowls.  I, personally, LOVE a man wearing anything hand knit!)  I had stash yarn from this sweater and this sweater and decided to combine the two.  
I ran the opposite color through each row and thought that perhaps it can be worn the opposite way as well.  A reversible cowl?  Even better.

Pattern:  Easy striped Cowl.
Yarn:  Berroco Peruvia Quick
Time:  Quick!  Love it!

    I love this, Leslie! I made the "Burberry cowl" for my husband a couple of years ago...he loves it but I don't think it looks very masculine. This is truly unisex - thanks so much for sharing! I can always count on you for knitting inspiration! Happy knitting!!!

  4. Very pretty ... I love how it's 2 sided. :)

  6. I've made several of these for gifts two years ago;
    they were very well received

  7. This looks fabulous, and so nice and warm and cozy for your climate. I live in Australia, and it is just too warm here, even in winter, for something so luxuriously warm. I find 8ply is the thickest I can go here. But I do love your cowl :)

  8. What a great looking cowl!

  9. I'm with you about men wearing cowls, they look super smooth!!
    Cheers, Anita.

  10. Looks snugly and perfect whether it be on a man or a woman. I ♥ the label you stitched in. I need some of those...
