FO Friday: Cuddly Cowlgirl

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.

  1. Love it! I have been thinking about that one, just need to find the right skein. Yours is adorable with the charm and tassel.

  2. Well done! It's beautiful and a good look for you! I second you making one for yourself. :)
