Angora Cowl


Don't die of shock, it's a knitting post!

Here's my latest design, a long cowl with a flared base to cover my shoulders. It's long enough to wear as a snood as well. My main goal was to have something simple and not too lacy that would keep me warm at my desk.

I used some lace-weight angora sent to me by a dear friend.

I've recently had a short contract working at the Australian Government's Attorney-General's Department (copy editing their website). I had an hour each way on the bus to and from work, so plenty of knitting time! As a result, I finished this in about three weeks.

I will write up the pattern and put it on Ravelry soon. Any ideas for a snazzy name?

  5. That cowl totally rocks. The color is awesome on you, and I love that the back is longer than the front. Brilliant design!
