Very easy knitted cowl

 A month or so ago, when it was freezing and every evening I'd be shivering waiting for my train I decided to make a cowl. I started with this beautiful Noro yarn and crocheted my way happily for a little while until I realised it just wasn't right. I needed something big and stretchy and cosy. The crocheted one only just fit over my head and wasn't very quick to make. This however was a quick and necessary knit.

 I cast on a multiple of 6 (+2 for turning) and quickly knitted 3 and purled 3 till I reached my desired height. It's very warm and snuggly and was super quick to make, it's been fairly essential since I've made it. Just what I wanted.


  1. So pretty! Love the variegated yarn.

  2. Hi Helen, Love your crochet projects and wonderful photos. The crochet necklace is gorgeous-lovely idea for using simple chain and all sorts of unique beads from your travels! Best wishes Alison xx
