This is me finally making good on my promise to show you the cowl I made for a recent swap. I showed you the wonderful cowl I received a few weeks ago:
Well, this is what I sent off:
I call it the Cuddly Cowlgirl. It's the Bandana Cowl, a popular free pattern on Ravelry. It's a very quick but interesting knit, working from the bottom tip of the triangle up. I would definitely like to make it again for myself. For my swap partner, I made it in a natural brown and cream alpaca, so it's super soft. I like that the fabric it made is also relatively loose, so it drapes and even though it's warm, it doesn't end up too hot.
For flair, I added a tassel and cowboy hat charm on the end. Just to make sure everyone would know that someone from Texas made it, ya'll. Here's a close-up of the tassel and charm:
I really enjoyed this project, and I'm hoping that the owner is just as pleased. I know she enjoyed the Gingerbread Pancake Mix from Kerbey Lane Cafe I also sent, which you may remember as the scene of many of my WIP Wednesdays.
