Chunky Moss Stitch Cowl

Do you know that feeling of knitting-induced guilt that you get when you've promised somebody a knit, but life keeps getting in the way and you keep putting the project off? And then every time you see them, you have that awkward "Dude, I'm so going to get started on your knit" conversation and they nod their head kindly but slightly unbelievingly at you, and you scuttle away cursing your lack of decent knitting time, and go home to wallow in a big fat swamp of knitting shame?


Well, I ain't got none of that bad ass feeling no more, because this knitted gift is DONE, DUDES!


Cowl


This is a knit for my gorgeous friend Kate, who modelled the original pattern for Woolarium last year. Sorry it took so long, Kate - hope you think it's worth the wait!


This version has been knitted up in Rowan Alpaca Chunky, which is the smooshiest, most huggable yarn you could ever lay your hands on. It's made with a chain construction, which is not only easy to knit but adds a wonderful layer of texture to the design.


And since it's so quick to make on 10mm needles (well, once you get started - oops!) there's no excuse for not making one for yourself, too!

Pattern: Chunky Moss Stitch Cowl by Woolarium

  1. Ooh. 10mm needles. That would make a quick knit, wouldn't it? At least you got it done well before winter, she probably wouldn't have wanted it any earlier anyway. Isn't it a great feeling finishing something that's been hanging over your head?

  2. I'm going through this right now. I promised a friend a hat and haven't finished it yet.
