From my needles to yours

This mistake rib cowl was my comfort project of the winter of 2010-11.  I made the first one with some precious bulky weight handspun merino from my friend Jenny, which she and I later dyed a deep deep emerald green.

Mmmmmm…  I love this color, love this cowl.

I loved it so much I couldn’t stop there.  This one is made with Lamb’s Pride Bulky in “Oatmeal.”  Lamb’s Pride was my first yarn-crush back when I was a noob (is this becoming a belated yarnie Valentine post?). I remember when Lamb’s Pride was really popular and easy to find.  I miss those days.

Then I foisted my cowl pattern on my friends and family.  Dennay made it in Lanaloft Bulky “Autumn Run”:

My mom made it with Lion Brand Homespun in a colorway known only to the stash-gods:

And now it is your turn!  You can find the free pattern on my website here.  The Ravelry project page is here.

Enjoy and stay warm.

    Yay finished pattern! Now where’s the baby shrug? I’m just about finished with my hat, so I need something new. 🙂
