If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

Another Cowl Started And Finished

I went ahead and started another cowl. This one is for me. It goes with the Reflective Rachelle Earwarmer. I knit it with the same Red Heart Reflective yarn, and I tried to pick up the pattern of the headband with it.

Here's what I did:


1 Skein Red Heart Reflective
#6 circular needles (Note: I used 8's because of my loose knitting style)
Gauge = 3.25 st = 1"

Cast on 70 stitches and join in the round.
Begin working pattern:
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: Purl
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: Purl

Repeat these five rows until desired length is achieved. Mine is about 8" tall.
Knit one row and bind off in Knit stitch. Weave in ends.

This is a nice, dense cowl, that matches the earwarmer perfectly. I'm sure I'm going to get a lot of use out of it, as soon as I am breathing well enough to go outside.
