quick + purly: 5 cowls

Spring spring springspring SPRING! Now that the weather is improving, I'm starting to look for portable projects that I can work on outside. Cowls (a.k.a. circular scarves) seem like a great option:

  • worked in the round = less likely to lose a DPN
  • one skein of yarn = squeeze it into a bag
  • repetitive pattern = easy to remember
Circular scarves continue to be part of the uniform for so many people, at least here in NYC. They add a touch of flair to your outfit and make temperature fluctuations (inside and out) more bearable.

  1. Appia by Hilary Smith Callis $5 USD 
  2. loggia by Asa Tricosa €4 
  3. Dandelion Days by Chrissy Prange $4 USD 
  4. Jemma Cowl by Carolyn Kern $4 USD 
  5. Apollo and Daphne Cowl by Katie Carmack $4 USD

Do you have a favorite cowl I missed? There are so many pretties! Oftentimes I wear a wide-triangle shawl bandit-style around my neck, but the cowl has one significant advantage: no ends to wrestle with.

Thanks for stopping by, and happy knitting!
xoxo, Kathleen
