Gaptastic Cowl

Somehow I just couldn’t stop myself from casting on another one of the insanely popular patterns on Ravelry. Seriously, 1218 projects since December last year?  Mad!  But the GAP-tastic Cowl is a lovely pattern. Free. Easy. Cute. What’s not to like!

Well, aside from the fact it’s 12ply and I knit it in January at the height of summer perhaps?  It took me until the other day to even want to try it on in the heat. But it’s nice to know I have something to wear when the weather cools down.  Our wee Autumnal spurt of weather receeded and we are enjoying lovely days once again.  Too warm for a cowl!

I knit this from my leftover Cleckheaton Country 12 ply yarn. It’s not the softest yarn in the world – I can imagine this cowl in a big fat single would be amazing! Or in Malabrigo or 100PureWool. Oh man, it’s almost enough to wish for winter! 

The knitting is super simple. Big yarn, big needles, simple repeat.  Can’t beat it. And, if you can’t beat ’em, you might as well join ’em!
