Knit Cowl…thank you Pinterest!

Pretend like that vase is a person’s head and neck!  I tried to take my picture wearing this but it just didn’t work out!  Anyway, I was pinning away on Pinterest one day and found this really cool cowl. 
I am not much of a scarf wearer because I don’t like the ends hanging down from my coat or blowing in the breeze.  I think this is a great solution! 
All it took was a few hours watching TV.  I didn’t have the size 17 circular needles so I went with a few more stitches around and used size 15 circular needles.   I did use the yarn that Maggie used from Smashed Peas and CarrotsWool-Ease® Thick & Quick® Yarn…I used the Barley color. 
Anyway, I am pleasantly pleased with how easy and cute it turned out!
Linking to these great parties!

thanks for sharing your project! Yours turned out wonderfully. I did go over to the link that you supplied and "pinned" it on my board too. (Lord, it took that blog site a long time to load...I almost gave up). I saw your post over at "Anything Goes" Party.
