Cowl Central

I've been obsessively making cowls over the last few week, first was my lovely teal coloured cowl, immediately followed by my golden yellow cowl, again for me! lastly Dave asked me to knit him one for when he is out cycling so we bought a beautiful charcoal grey organic German chunky wool, which turned out fab.
More pics to follow of my yellow and teal cowl finished.

Glowing Ember Infinity cowl

I found this pattern on the ever inspiring Ravelry website,if you are not a member join, there are thousands of patterns from knitters around the world. This cowl is made with Cascade 100% Peruvian Highland wool.
I'm excited about this pattern as it is knitted on circular needles so no need for sewing which gives a seemless finish. I went for a bright blue colour  7813. I also purchased a great yellow which I'll probably start on next week. Wool is not exactly suitable for the Summer months I'll just have to wait till October to wear them!
