Yesterday and into this morning, I knitted two cowls. One I used a pattern I found on Raverly, and I'll talk about it in a later post. The other pattern is a pattern I kind of sort of made up by accident. And I love, love, LOVE it! I couldn't be happier with the way this cowl turned out, and I'm going to share the long, sorded details with you today. Don't you just love that?!
I know you can't wait, so let's get started.
First, the yarn is a 100% Wool super bulky thick to thin, hand spun, hand dyed yarn that I found on Etsy. The seller's shops is Absolute Knits, and as soon as I saw it I fell in love with the wild colors.
I noticed she doesn't have the yarn listed anymore so I obviously wasn't the only person who fell in love.
So I knew I wanted to knit a cowl with this yarn as soon as I saw it, and I at first thought I wanted to knit the other cowl I mentioned earlier with it. I soon realized that wouldn't work. So I tried to figure out how exactly I wanted the cowl to look.
As luck would have it, a while back I'd bought some fun, bright colored buttons and an idea started to wiedle it's way in. I was pretty certain those buttons would match the yarn. And if that was the case then the cowl didn't have to be a closed cowl. I could attach the buttons and wear it in many different styles.
So that's what I did.
