Never Not Knitting: The Shawl Collared Cowl

Some of you may have noticed that I've modeled another pattern from Alana of Never Not Knitting. I have to tell you- this is THE perfect neckwarmer. Seriously.  I'm going to knit myself one, and then I'm going to knit one for every one on my Christmas list. This is the perfect unisex pattern, too.


Check out Alana's full blog post here. If you make this pattern (and I sincerely hope that you will), you really must knit it with an alpaca yarn. This neckwarmer was so cuddly soft, so delicious against the skin, that if it had actually been cold out there is no way I would have returned it!! And considering that it was absolutely sweltering the day G and I shot the photos, that really is saying something.

i've never been tempted to knit a neck warmer before, but this looks amazing. i do, however, live in southern california, so maybe i'll just queue it & save it for my eventual return to colder climes.

Oh, I so envy your earrings! Yeah, the cowl is amazing and it is so genius to use short rows to make the back higher.
