Chic Knits Skinny Cowl

Chic Knits Skinny CowlOh Happy (Holi)Days!! A new scarf jumps off the needles just in time for the party…

Here’s the Skinny Cowl (10 st version) I’ve been working on, modeled so you can see how such a simple thing can be such an awesome buddy!

Because it isn’t very wide and because it is quite long, it can wrap around the neck in a *custom* way to fit you and the garment you wear this with.

Because it is made of garter stitch, it has the quality to *shake hands* with its neighbors (Christmas Cheer!) and stay in place once it’s positioned.

When you make garter stitch with such big yarn, it’s sort of like Leggos — heh, like a jigsaw, the nubs slightly interlock.

What I like especially about this little number is the back of the neck, where a subtle layering takes place, building the width needed, as applied.

Function follows form in such a useful way!

Pattern: Chic Knits Skinny Cowl
Yarn: Bouton d’Or ORLOV
