This cowl neck warmer was knit with Lion Brand Wool-Ease thick & quick yarn. On size 13 sticks this was truly quick. It took about 2 hours total, of which, most was done watching Dancing with the Stars last evening. It's 80% acrylic and 20% wool. It's soft and pliable. I think I will gift this one and make another for myself.
Next are two crocheted cowl neck warmers. A nifty trick of hooking in the back loop makes the ridges which gives the appearance of knitted. Both will be gifts for my son and signficant other. Hers is a relaxed circle for today's fashion trend of wearing these as an accessory. His is a snug circle meant for warmth on long walks with the the dog.
Today's project will be a wide headband in the above black and white yarn. I love the tweedy. I will duplicate the pattern stitches of the cowl, but shorten the overall length. I need warmth, but not necessarily a hat. Also, it is a great way to wear my weekend ponytails.
