Chunky Cowl With Bow - My First Knitting Pattern!

Chunky Cowl With Bow - 
My First Knitting Pattern!
I wasn't feeling very well last night, 
so I decided to sit down and knit.
I pulled out some knitting Needles 
that I have had forever.
 I am am not even sure where 
or when I got them!
US19-15mm and US10 -6mm

Then I pulled out some fun Bulky yarn 
I had on hand -
Whimsy Bulky By Yarn Bee - Lava Rocks
as well as, Some Worsted weight (4)
 Red Heart Love in Black

And This What I designed:

The Chunky Cowl With Bow
The cowl and the bow are both 
stitched in just the Garter Stitch,
 so this is a great beginner project,
 to practice your knit stitch and
 make something fun to wear.
I Love it.
