One of my all-time favorite patterns is the cowl, which is technically just a knitted tube. But, when I slip it over my head it becomes a softly draping beautiful necklace that I want to wear every day from December til March.
This is the perfect travel project - it has so few ingredients! I knit my cashmere cowl as Nick and I travelled from Seattle to Portland and back again, crossing the mouth of the mighty Columbia River.
My cowl is a variation of the beautiful Pashmina Cowl from Joelle's Last Minute Knitted Gifts. She used a smaller needle to knit Joseph Galler's luxurious pashmina yarn in stockinette stitch. -- Isabelle
