November Knits: Purl Bee Lovely Ribbed Cowl

We occasionally come across a pattern that is such a pleasure to knit that we can’t stop with just one.  Theresa found just such a pattern last month, and has been hooked on the Purl Bee Lovely Ribbed Cowl.  She has been experimenting with several different yarns, and each version is worthy as a gift for any one at the top of your list.This simple ribbed cowl is a pleasure to work in the round requiring no counting after your cast on and first row.  I love projects that allow me to work without much thought, simply knitting what I see.  These are perfect for end of day knitting when you’re a bit tired, or distracted by a TV program.  We meet many knitters looking for simple things to keep their hands busy during sports games this time of year. purl ribbed cowlWe have a sample in the shop made from two skeins of Blue Sky Suri Merino, and another knit up with tosh merino DK.  She is currently working on a version of the cowl using a strand of Anzula Cricket held  together with a strand of Shibui Silk Cloud.  Wow.There is nothing we'd like better than to find a yarn for you to use for this project.  Finding fun colors is our favorite past time in the shop.  Stop on by this month to take a look a Theresa's beautiful cowls, and let's get you started on one of your own!
