It’s great to finish a knitting pattern, especially when you’re looking forward to wearing the final result! This cowl was just the kind of project I was in the mood for. I enjoyed the knitting process from beginning to end. It was one of those relaxing patterns that are simple and easy and small enough to finish fairly quickly.
Here’s a photo of me knitting the last few rows.
The photo below shows the cowl when it measured 12 inches from top to bottom. Isn’t the color blend fun? After snapping this photo, I bound off my stitches and wove in the yarn ends.
The cowl may not look very wide when it’s laying on a flat surface, but once it was off the needles, it stretched out nicely, and I could loop it twice around my neck. Warm and snug! Just how I like it.
Next week, we’ll be sharing photos of knit cowls sent to us by our readers. If you’ve had a chance to participate in this knit along, be sure to email us a photo at email@example.com. We’d love to share it on the blog.
If you haven’t started this pattern yet, definitely give it a look. There’s still plenty of winter weather left, and this is a cowl you’ll wear again and again. You can find this pattern in our Winter Issue.
Let us know how your cowl shaped up. Did you enjoy this pattern as much as I did?
