Knitted Cowl

I decided a while ago that I wanted to make myself a cowl or shawl for winter, so I ordered some Debbie Bliss Chunky Cashmerino in Teal and while I waited for it to arrive, I knitted up this cowl from a free pattern I found on Flickr...


Meanwhile Tadhg claimed it for himself....


The pattern is perfect for beginners as it is only plain knitting, no purl and nothing fancy, just a rectangle, It falls neatly and is very flat at the back due to the way it is sewn up. I used some cotton yarn which I have had forever.
It is far from perfect but he loves it and I really won't mind too much if he loses it at school! It is not prescious...just well loved.
Here is a link to the pattern.
I did knit up the shawl in the Debbie Bliss yarn, but I need to photograph it in day-light....Guess what Maeve has claimed that one!!!!

Yupi!!! I was thinking about it yesterday evening!!! I can't believe it:) I thought, I need something in one piece, a scarf is not great, I could still feel cold. It is so good that is easy peasy. Your son looks so cute without two teeth:)))
I love the yarn colour:)

It looks awesome Millie! and he's so adorable!
I'd love to learn how to knit and be able to make such wonderful stuff!

Very nice! I've been wanting to make myself one of these as well. I'm not a fancy knitter so the pattern sounds perfect! LOL!

I am glad that you might use this pattern Monika...It really is very easy...The only thing is that there is little coverage at the back, which would be fine if you have a good collar. He is cute without the two teeth!

Iveth..thank you..he's a great boy with his own sense of style...If you do learn to knit, you'd be able to make's so simple, just the very first knit stitch you learn. The way it is sewn makes it look a bit more complicated, but it's not.

Thanks Heather... I'm far from fancy when it comes to knitting! I wish I was better, but I'm too impatient!
