I know that recently I have been knitting a lot of shawls and shawlettes and really I’ve tried to wear them but I’m afraid to admit that they just aren’t me. They are bulky and don’t stay put when wrapped around my neck. They aren’t practical to wear with a jacket. I end up looking like I’m all boobs or have a hunchback. I decided to give a gator/cowl a try. It will sit right around my neck keeping away the chill and look stylish and accessorized without being too fashion forward. The pattern is Later Gator by Amanda Berka. I am knitting it on size 6 needles with Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in color 14. The pattern is well written and easy to remember. The yarn is soft and almost feels like suede. The yarn and pattern are a perfect match for a soft but interesting cowl.
