Finally Finished Knit Cowl

Knit Cowl 


Hello blog friends.  I am happy to say that I finally finished knitting the cowl that I started making back in the fall.  I finished this in the middle of January but I did not get a chance to share it on the blog until now.

I originally wanted to knit this into a large scarf for myself but I got a little bored knitting it.  I figured out the solution and I decided to make it into a cowl.  Does that ever happen to you where you get bored making something?  I find for myself the seed stitch a little tedious.  I will have to find a knit stitch that I like better for my next scarf I make.

You might remember me mentioning about this scarf and this yarn from this post I did HERE.





I knitted this cowl in the seed stitch and cast on 21 stitches.  I used 9 US or 5.5 mm needles.  The cowl is 25 inches long and 6 1/2 inches wide.

I folded the cowl in half and then sewed up the two sides together to form a cowl.

This is what the knit cowl looks like.  I am so happy I finished knitting the cowl and I enjoy wearing it with my outfits and different coats.

I still have two more skeins of this yarn left and at some point I will probably make myself crocheted handwarmers.

Do you have any finished projects on your needles?


Thanks for stopping by and have a nice week and weekend.

  5. Good idea for a quicker finish. I have a few projects started but none of them finished. Knitting projects go really slow for me.

  7. I love the color and I think that you came up with a fabulous solution! I am off to pin since all I know how to make is a scarf, but I think I could close one up and make this!!

  8. Great solution Julie, I prefer a cowl anyway a scarf tends to flap about. I love the colour it will go with so many things. :) xx

  10. Love to see your talents Julie. This one is pretty and a great color. I have been wearing my pretty white scarf and love it. I am so glad you have continued to enjoy crocheting. It is becoming a lost art. So it is good to see that you still enjoy creating beautiful knit and crochet pretties. Have a wonderful day.

  11. It looks beautiful! I'm sure it's very warm too. I have a spring cardigan on my needles, but it's still very cold to wear it.
    Have a great day!
    Hugs.

  12. Although the seed stitch is tedious it looks so pretty when finished. I love the color of your cowl and I think you may get another few weeks of wear out of it!!

  13. Your cowl is very pretty, Julie. I love the stitch and color. It's always so nice to finish a project. I know you mostly stitch for charity, so it is nice to see that you have made something beautiful for yourself. xo Karen
