Need to Warm Up Your Neck?

Swan’s Island sent us this awesome Olivia Cowl pattern to offer with purchase of a skein of their Worsted weight yarn. I liked the look of it so much that I whipped one up. The trouble is, this one needs to stay at the shop, so I am going to have to make another one for myself. 🙂 You can wear it in a single loop, or double up to get closer to your neck. It’s knit as a long (42″) piece and then you Kitchener the edges together. I made mine in the Raspberry color.

It was quick to knit up and I really like the way the basketweave stitch is on an angle. See?

I also like the substantial looking edges on the top and bottom. It looks like an i-cord edging, but it’s just the way the pattern knits up.

Do you need a new cowl for the wintery weather? If you order a skein of Swan’s Island Worsted and would like the pattern, just leave us an order note and we will email it to you.

  1. Just as I think I’m up to my ears with projects, you manage to hook me with another one! Time to order more yarn and plan a new project!

  2. Oh I love that! I may have to make one to match my mittens that I made with their Worsted Weight. That yarn is just a dream to work with.

  3. We had our first snow here in Jeff City
    So neck warms are on my list of project, as well as my needle

    Stay warm.

  4. We had the family Raising of the Tree and I made your Congo Bars, but I gave away more than half. So my poor, deprived Cookie Monster H asked if there were any more – uh – Bongo Bars?

    I made more, of course, laughing all the way. After changing the name on the recipe in my file to Bongo Bars.

    Just as good, if not better!

  5. LOVE the Swans Island, but have too many projects going already, including a cowl out of Tundra that I’ve yet to start. Save me one, please?

  6. I’m still mostly in garter stitch land, but maybe in January when I finally knit myself a cowl (I’m giving the awesome honey cowl I knit to my SIL for Christmas).
