FO On Tuesday: Lazy Edition

My Sockhead Cowl is done! I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s so soft and warm. I’m very happy to have gone with a cowl instead of socks. As you can see it’s very generously sized with plenty of fabric to pull it right up over your face when the wind is blowing.

The pattern is Sockhead Cowl by Kelly McClure. The yarn is Dream in Color Jilly with cashmere in Loopy Graduation. The pattern is simple to knit, well written and very clear. The yarn is super soft and a pleasure to knit. I knit my cowl on a size 3US needle. I did get lazy at the end and didn’t go with the recommended stretchy bind off. I used an easier one that isn’t super stretchy but stretchy enough. I would knit this again. It’s great for times when you need something mindless to knit.

    Nice! And you finished just in time to enjoy using it for the big storm coming (and all the other wintery weather we’ll have for the next several months)! I really want to try this pattern. I think I have some appropriate yarn around here somewhere…..

  4. Looks wonderful! I think I may have to have one of these in my closet some day. I like that you can pull it up over your face for those windy, snow blowing days. Great job!

    Great cowl. I just put it in my Ravelry library. I like the fact that it can be pulled up to cover the face during our nor’easters.

  8. It looks great. I love how it is small enough to pull up and cover your face on really cold days. I think I have the right yarn to make this in my stash.

  14. I made a sockhead cowl last month and am very happy with mine, too, but it is Christmas colors. I’m thinking that I need another one that i can wear all winter. Love yours!

    A great finish, Karen. To knit something that long in fingering weight is a race well run.
