Cowl Knitting



I think you could say I’ve become a little obsessed with knitting cowls! They are just so satisfying and easy to knit and I love searching for the perfect luxury yarn in my stash, finding it and casting on. So yes, I have begun yet another cowl, I still don’t have a name for it, so perhaps if you could share a suggestion or two?

I am knitting in Nurturing Fibres Spaghetti Aran yarn called Oxalis, I bought it here, this green is my favourite and it’s a blend of Merino, Mohair and silk…. so soft indeed!!

Yesterday, I ventured out into the garden just as the sun was setting, (my favourite time of day) sat down on the cool lush green grass and knit, it was heavenly.

    Ah – that colorway looks exactly the way your last paragraph sounds: shades of green, and oh, so soft and balmy. Beautiful. Today, our roads and walks and even the old snow surface – all like sheets of glass. Very dangerous out there.

    Did you finish the previous cowl with the beautiful browns and greens? I would love to see the finished product!

      Hi Michelle,
      Yes, I did, it’s in my previous post, I called it Rustic Earth Cowl and it’s a free pattern on my blog:)

      Seaglass is a beautiful name!

        Which pattern will you be doing this cowl in? I have a skein of similar colors and was going to start a baby hat, but my circular needles are too big. I could use them for the cowl.

          Somehow I missed your reply to Jennifer about your design for the pattern. 🙂

    Hi dear Linda
    I love the green yarn, beautiful peaceful colours. Reminds me of our African wet season – all is green right now – the Emerald season cowl. Beautiful. I haven’t even knitted a cowl yet. Must give it a try. Seems there are no yarn shops/knitting shops here. Oh dear. All I have come across are a few balls of basic acrylic at the back of fabric shops. Clutching on to the small stash of handspun and pure fibres I bought with me!
    Love to you!

      Hello dear friend:)
      Lovely name for the cowl thank you. That’s sad about the yarn shops, let me know if you want me to send anything up to you:)

    Oceana. I also love the above suggestion of seaglass. Beautiful colour.

      Thanks Kylie:)

    The colours remind me of a particular type of lichen that has reproductive structures that look like tiny pixie cups. Thus, it is named Pixie Cup lichen.
    You can find a picture of it on this website:

    I would name this cowl “Pixie Cups” for that delicate blend of blue/grey/green.

      Becca, that is such gorgeous lichen and the name is perfect! Thanks for the link:)

    that is on my list of things to make new. I have seen so many wear them, and they look good. I hate a coat I feel caged in one. so I think this will work well for me as I like something over my shoulders and up around my neck. what pattern are you using for cowls?

      Hi Jennifer,

      I am still busy with the design and will publish it soon:)
