You know sometimes you get all excited for a project, then once it’s done you just don’t love it that much? That’s what happened here. It sat in my closet for almost a year when I finally decided to recycle it into another project.
At first I was going to make a new cardigan design, but after starting on that, I also frogged it and started to look for patterns online. I had about 8 balls of this yarn to work with so I’ve been able to make a few different projects out of it (BONUS!). The first one I made was the Mountain Slouch (which I love) and the second one is this beautiful Hooded Cowl by Lil Crafty Chickadee on Etsy.
The yarn I used is Bernat Softee Chunky in black. I love the feel and fit of it. I was also excited to finally get to use my new hook from We Are Knitters. I haven’t had many projects so far that call for this size hook, so that was anther exciting part of this project.
I attached one of the garment tags from Brick Bubble I ordered last year for a cute accent.
All in all I am so happy with this cowl. The hood folds back and becomes a part of the cowl and it fits perfectly under a jacket without being too bulky.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, it’s nice to be back! Thanks for reading.
