I bought some pretty green and brown yarn on our Baltimore Yarn Crawl a couple of weeks ago. I cast on later that evening (since I was in a funk about my two WIPs). And less than a week later, I was wearing a new cowl: I have resisted making a cowl for several years now. I think it’s mostly the name that turns me off! But cowls are way faster to knit than scarves, and they serve a similar function. I really like this one.
Some cowls are shaped like a bell or have a button closure, but this one is just a simple, straight tube knit in the round:
It is the Darkside Cowl (free pattern, but Rav link) and it uses the same rib-and-welt pattern that I used for the Pansy Socks and the Plum Pansy Socks. I really like this stitch pattern. These colors make me very happy, too!
