I’ve had this lovely cowl done for a while now, but had to wait to share until it made its way over the sea to my friend Sarah (remember Sir Ted? that’s her!).
This is the GAP-tastic Cowl pattern done in Lion Brand Hometown USA in Dallas Gray. I’ve used the Hometown USA before, for the New Home Throw, and it’s a great machine-washable yarn that is warm and squishy.
I made a few modifications to this pattern to use the super bulky yarn. I decided to cast on 101 stitches on size 13 needles after doing some research on Ravelry from others who had substituted yarn, and it worked out very well. I knit until I ran out of yarn, and I had a full skein plus a little. It turned out to be 6.5” wide and about 24.5” around, which is enough to comfortably double loop the cowl for the super cold days.
I hope we’re about done with snow both here and abroad, but in case we’re not, she’ll be ready!
