From Susan — The Big One

Filed under: Updates — lv2knit @ 8:33 pm

Sally and I joke about this nickname for me — “It’s the big one we don’t like.”  BUT, I just added a simple, free pattern to Ravelry and thought I would share it with all of you.  The Biggest Cowl Ever.


The ‘Biggest Cowl Ever’ in Loops and Threads’ Dewdrops, Color Smokey Quartz (71 yds/85 gms, 5 skeins, sz 13 needles)

See?  Big.  Really big.  But I wear it and love it.  It sparkles!  My daughter had a cowl like it from a store so I borrowed the concept. :)

I wore it with my coat yesterday in the killer windchill and did not bother to wrap it around my neck, but wore it long.  It was really warm!

You can subtitute other bulky yarns or hold two yarns together.   Anyway, it knits up in a couple of evenings and is a fun fashion forward accessory to add to your wardrobe!!

  6. I was always the “smart one.” And I did NOT take that as a compliment.

  7. That does look extremely cosy. Not good in today’s 45-degree heat but bound to be a winner in winter. Thank you for sharing.
