Swift Swirl Cowl

A knitting Pattern

I have a new pattern to add to the Swift Swirl Series. The last 2 patterns, the Swift Swirl Hat and the Swift Chevron Hat were worked in the round. For this pattern it is worked flat so some of the rules change a little. It is still an easy to follow along pattern and I was able to finish this cowl up in a weekend.

 I was so excited to be working on this cowl. I always have a lot of fun with yarns that change colors, they make me keep going because I want to see how the next color will look. The yarn is Lion Brand: Amazing and the color is Cosmos. This is some yarn that my Granny had bought before she passed away. I don't know what she had planned for it, but it makes me feel close to her as I wear my new cowl.  

Another great thing about this yarn is that I only needed 1 skein to finish off this cowl. Towards the end I felt like I was playing yarn chicken but there was enough to make a seamless finish. So be warned you might want to pick up 2 just in case. 

I am pretty sure this is going to be a fall staple in my wardrobe this year.  I'm wearing it right now as I type.

  1. If one needs to use a substitute yarn due to issues with wool do you recommend one in particular? Sending email with same question.

    1. I would recommend caron simply soft, or loops and threads impeccable. The yellow hat above is made with impeccable for reference.
