I'd really recommend this pattern to all my knitterly lovers out there - it took me less than a week of train rides and a few episodes of Parks & Rec to smash this gorgeous cowl out and I'm pretty chuffed.
It's certainly not going to make it to blocking. Ever. Because that would mean taking it off. Maybe come summer?
Here it is being worn freshly off the needles at the dog park on Sunday...
It's guaranteed that at least two of my family members will receive one of these for Christmas this year. In fact, I'm off to buy yarn right... now.
