The easy, fast projects have included coffee cozys, fingerless mitts and scarves. This year I decided to make cowls which is like a scarf but circular so it's a scarf loop that can be worn hung or doubled up for more warmth.
I had some super bulky yarn (Lion Thick & Quick) which makes the projects a snap. The first project I knit is called Bulky Ribbed Cowl that is free on Ravelry.
It is so warm and cozy although not as practical here in SoCal but it will be a nice if you're travelling to a colder area. :)
|This should fight off the biting chill of winter.|
|This is the truer color.|
Next up is the drop stitch cowl. It uses the same bulky weight yarn but with the dropped stitches, the cowl is opened up more for a less dense fabric and a more fashionable accessory.
|Pretty sky blue yarn.|
|I still don't think I can pull off this look.|
