Finished green cowl

Okay, so not so much going to be wearing this with the stripy shirt, or at least not this one, but you can get the idea. I finished it a few days ago and I am very happy with it, though I am still not sure if I am a cowl wearing person. Mostly I think because it's called a cowl, I think I am more likely to where a neck warmer thingy, but whatever.

It was so easy and fast, I used this pattern as a guide for the circumference and the length, though this one has two more full rounds of eight then the original has and I used a worsted yarn instead of a dk weight. I used size eight circular needles and almost three balls of Pure Merino Nuance in Ecologique.

I started to write out an explanation of yarn weights and the like and I bored myself to tears. I will have to call you Becca, then we can catch up with our twin talk and I can fill you in on the yarn haps. I've missed you.

Look Rebecca, it's easy, you know?

What you do is you take some primo two-twenty, skin it up with some fundled zippidee, then you barn a sixteen-and-three-eighths wangknocker under — not over! — the peasnicker.

Here's where most people go wrong: they don't round the hinkey. If I've said it once, I've said it a million times. You have to round the hinkey.

See? You'll be cowl-clad in no time.

And here I was thinking it was boring, I completely forgot about rounding the hinkey. My life was a mess until I started rounding the hinkey. Thanks RD for straighten me out.

And I meant to say that I think your cowl kicks a.
