The November Cowl

Greetings from Steamboat Springs to my family, friends, followers, and readers!

This blog is especially for my crafty friends... I want to share with you the November Cowl design.

The November Cowl

By Cho Tin Tun Kirkpatrick


The November Cowl was inspired by the cooler weather we experience in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, U.S.A. It is a fast knit project worked bottom-up, in the round over 17 stitches on 20 rows repeat. The pattern is very easy to follow and you will want to keep knitting. Thus, the November Cowl is very appropriate for the cold month of November, plus it will make a great handmade gift for the Holidays!
