Chunky Cowl With Bow -
My First Knitting Pattern!
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.
