Garter Stockinette Cowl

Cowl or infinity scarf they are great, I decided to use one skein of my Cascade bulky leisure Alpaca & Cotton blend yarn for this cowl, I had purchase two skein on sale at my local yarn store.

I started to make a garter stitch cowl, since I have not yet learned to use a circular needle, I used a US size 11 knitting needles and went with a straight garter stitch pattern like my first scarf but with a twist.

I found that a yarn can inspire a design, this yarn is a fuzzy boucle, so some parts are thicker than others, but with such a special yarn I wanted to create more interest in the garment. To break up the garter stitch I created a random pattern by adding a bit of stockinette stitch.

The cowl took me two days to complete after I found the size I prefer, also add two days of designing and knitting then starting over or frogging back as it is called in the knitting vocab.

I finished the cowl yesterday, I used the seaming and steam blocking technique I learn from the knit lab, I was so happy with my completed cowl I wore it out last night..sweet.
