Easy and quick: the Gaptastic Cowl

Knitting, Knitting PatternsBrenda Reynoso PenaComment

I feel good. I have completed a pair Rose city rollers socks for my cousin and a cowl in the same month. The Gap-tastic cowl is done, blocked and ready for the cold days ahead. The temperatures are slowly dropping here in Florida and I can't wait for our short winter to wear my knitted accessories. 

It is obvious why this free  pattern is so popular all over Instagram and Ravelry. Not only this is a friendly beginner's pattern, it is also a great project to pick up when you are watching TV or just talking with friends. It is so soft! I used 3 skeins of cascade 128 bulky in charcoal and us13 circular needles. At first, I wasn't sure if 3 skeins was too much yarn, but I decided to keep knitting and just have a nice chunky cowl. After blocked, it got bigger! 32 in long and 19 in wide.  You can find details in my Ravelry page. But I love it's much I am going to knit another one for my daughter. Thank you  Jen Geigley  this free pattern. 

I guess I have a new cowl for next year's trip to the sheep and wool festival in Rhinebeck. Ready for some inspiration? I am bpknits2 in Instagram and search for #gaptasticcowl. Happy Knitting!
