Fallen for Cowls

This fall cowls are everywhere and I have definitely been bit by the bug.

It all started with the "Burberry Inspired Cowl" by Julianne Smith. This is a gorgeous knit that is wonderfully designed and so fun to do. Rowan Lima was begging to be knit into a cowl and finally it had found its perfect match.

Next, is a shop original. When Taos from Thaki Stacy Charles came in I was itching to make a cowl with it. The beauty of Taos is that it shines with the simplest stitch pattern. We reached for our copy of our favorite Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker and this is what was created.
Finally, when simplicity is what you want but desire something luxurious then the superior cowl is what you want to make. Just cast on and knit in the round to the end of the ball. Pure. Simple. Luxe.
If you also caught the cowl fever this fall, pop on in - we got your medicine.
