The price tag says $8.00 but Katia yarns are currently 50% off so the whole project costs only $8, and I found the pattern on Ravelry for free:
The designer of the Drop Stitch Cowl, Abi Gregorio, aka spiderwomanknits has a couple of very well-written, easy to follow patterns available for free on Ravelry. Check her out!
This cowl is knit in the round with size 13 circular needles, and is basically a garter stitch piece with some yarn overs thrown in, and of course some dropping of stitches. I love dropping stitches! Who doesn't? If you haven't made anything with dropped stitches before, try the Drop Stitch Cowl.
After 2 hours of knitting, and listening to a very confusing podcast on philosophy, I ended up with this!
I love the spring colors that will really pop in our landscape of gray and white. And I think this cowl will be really warm and snowman compatible as it is half wool and half acrylic, though I think I might wait until tomorrow to brave the outdoors. Gotta love NY in February!
