Time for a freebie don’t you think?  This is a quick fun knit and I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did.  I used Debbie Bliss Donegal Chunky Tweed and of course it has been discontinued.

 

I originally knit this up in Madelinetosh Bulky the one I bought from Imagiknit on my visit to San Francisco, but I call that one the “prototype.”  That’s what I call everything that didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted it to the first time.  Anyway that yarn too has been discontinued…. of course.  Don’t you hate that?   As soon as you discover a yarn and fall in love with it, its discontinued!

Another great yarn for this project would be (one of my favorites) – Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes (keep in mind this yarn is not a worsted).  You would only have to use one hank of each color of this yarn to make the cowl.  Some good color combinations would be:

                                                       Charcoal with Lagoon

   

 

                                                     or Rusty Orange with Putty

  

 

This is a fun pattern to choose colors for because one of the colors is your dominant color and the other one is a “peek-a-boo” color.  But if you turn your cowl inside out then your peek-a-boo color becomes your dominant color and then there is just a little pop of the other color on the edges.

 

      

 

Have fun knitting this cowl, and hopefully you can get a little wear out of it before it gets too warm!  See the link below for the free pattern!
