Merry Belated Christmas! I hope that you had a wonderful holiday, if you are one who celebrates it. Yesterday, I spent some time making a cowl for another co-worker.
Pattern: Darkside Cowl (Rav link) by Sarah Fama
Yarn: Berroco Peruvia Quick in boysenberry, 1 skein (almost exactly)
Needles: US 13 circulars
Time to Knit: Dec 24 - 25
Modifications: Since my gauge was different, I only cast on 64 stitches for this pattern.
I love how all of this came together! The yarn is very squooshy and it's a blend of several beautiful colors. I don't often knit with super bulky yarn, but it's perfect for a cowl. And it knits up so quickly!
The cowl is a great size. It fits and has enough body to cover my neck and keep me warm. My co-worker loves purple, and I think this will suit her well.
I ordered two skeins of the yarn because I wasn't sure if one skein would do. Since I used almost exactly one skein for this cowl, I can make a second one!
