Crazy Cowl

Okay, this one is pretty crazy, I know.  I basically just grabbed some yarn and started knitting, trying different stitches and stuff.  I guess I wanted to make a novelty item with some novelty yarn, and I did just that.  The yarn I used is this stuff, bulky thick and thin wrapped with a multicolor thread.  Anyway I started with a few rows of garter stitch and just kept knitting, making holes, bobbles and whatnot, until I decided it was wide enough. Then I made some buttonholes and casted off after a few more rows of garter stitch.  I used some plain buttons since the cowl itself is so crazy.  I ended up with one side that is really nuts with the loops hanging out, and the other side is more 'normal'.  I guess I can choose which side I want to be in front depending on my mood!  I apologize for my lack of mad self-portrait skills šŸ˜‰

  1. I *really* love this! I think my favorite part is the loops and scraggly bits hanging off it.. its very organic looking. I also think it shows off your handspun very well!!

  2. LOL… this certainly is different šŸ™‚
    I love the color of it šŸ™‚

  3. I don’t know why, but I absolutely love this! I just love how eclectic and punkish it looks. And totally one-of-a-kind. Excellent!
