The Cowl that Swallowed Me

For Christmas, my sister gave me a project to knit! At first, when she handed it to me, I thought she was giving me yarn and a pattern to knit a scarf for her, and was like, “Oh…how thoughtful of you for yourself.”  But no, it was for me!

Pattern: Chunky Seeded Cowl

Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky Natural

I love this! It’s big and chunky and I feel for a second like I’m a hip Brooklynite walking in Park Slope instead of a Denverite schlepping it on Larimer.

I would never, never have bought this color for myself–am not usually a fan of chartreuse, but I think it looks just lovely all knitted up.

The fabric is lofty  and heavily textured:

And in case of a sudden snowstorm, I can pull it up over my head to protect my coif.

I happen to have a skein left over and think that a slouchy hat would be the perfect companion piece.

Thanks, Sapana!

    I love that you love it! It looks great on you — even when it’s hooded like Lady Gaga. Mittens with that extra yarn might be nice instead of a hat as it could be a lot of chartreuse in one place. Just a thought.

      You say Lady Gaga, I say Jawa. This is why I’m a nerd. I like the idea of mittens! You’re right–it might be a bit of chartreuse overload.
