Cozy Red Cowl

I finished up a cowl this last week with some cozy, squishy, soft, red yarn.
Just in time for Valentine's Day!

It's made with two skeins of Lion Brand Tweed Stripes yarn and size 13 needles.
The pattern was a freebie from the yarn shop I got the yarn from.
I cast on 145 stitches in the round and it's basically random width sections of purl or knit.
Simple and fun!

I absolutely love it doubled up.

And, oh so soft and warm!

The colors are close to accurate in the photos...reds, pinks, oranges.  Pretty!

I'll definitely be wearing it on Valentine's Day, if it's chilly enough.
It'll work great for chilly Fridays for R.E.D. (Remember Everyone Deployed).
And, any other chilly days that I want a pop of red and squishy softness around my neck.

This is really beautiful. I love it and would wear it doubled. This almost makes me want to learn to knit.

You make the most beautiful cowls! This is gorgeous!

Bravo on completing that gorgeous red cowl! You should show us a photo of you wearing it. My next project is going to be blood red alpaca/silk. But I have to finish my grandson's blanket.. it's going on forever! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Love your new cowl - it's great and the red is perfect for this month.

Did you say once that you made the cover for your mannequin? I'm not happy with the cover that came with mine and am considering, when I have some free time, making one. I love yours.

This is very nice! I just picked up some wonderful, soft red yarn at the thrift shop!

This looks scrumptious! Nice work!

Cindie said...

Thank you for the link to the post on sewing the cover for your dressform...definitely a challenge...I'll eventually get to covering mine hoping it look half as good as yours.

I do love this scarf and the colors in it. I have a couple of skeins of yarn that I haven't done anything with that may be perfect for this.

Very pretty! Seems like every Friday it's a wear red for this or that.

It's beautiful, but I doubt it will be cool tomorrow. I hope you've been able to wear this, it's gorgeous! I'll be your way on the 24th, I think. Lunch, maybe?

My fingers would love to skoosh that cowl. It looks so soft!
