Quick Calm Cowl

Standard

Yesterday morning I was reading through the latest blogs that dropped into by inbox when I came across one that especially caught my eye. Mrs Patch showed the beginnings of the Calm Cowl that she was making. It was the yarn itself that caught my eye – I was given a ball (but in a different colour) for Christmas and had wondered what to do with it. The cowl seemed like the perfect thing! I found the pattern on Ravelry (Calm Cowl by Suzana Davidovic) and saw that I’d need to get at least 2, possibly 3 more balls.

So just before lunchtime I headed to my local yarn shop. I found the right yarn straight away – but not in the right colour! I then spent the next 15 minutes dithering, wandering back and forth along the shelves, picking up and putting down a multitude of different yarns until I finally settled on James C. Brett Monsoon, shade 5.

I’m so pleased with my choice – the colours are lovely! And the pattern is great too. It’s very clear to follow and it is so quick to finish. I think it took about 6 or 7 hours all together (I made over half of it while I was watching Sense and Sensibility with some friends, and that was about 3 hours long!) and it’s great to have a project that can be finished before I get bored!

And here it is…

It’s wonderfully cosy and I’m almost looking forward toΒ the weather turning colder so I have an excuse to wear it!
