FO: BFF Cowl ... finally

My BFF Cowl was finished weeks ago (as was Gail's, my knitting partner) but a few things got in the way of my posting about it here.  Having a busted camera and too many WIPs on the needles left my beautiful cowl languishing at the bottom of my knitting basket, but one of my goals for the holiday weekend was to finish it, and so I moved it right up to the top of the queue. This was such a fun project (and easy, too) and I know my new cowl will keep me extra cozy through the cold weather months.


I knit the Seed Pod cowl in Cascade Eco Duo which is incredibly soft and lofty.  Gail knit the Cocoon cowl in Cascade Cloud which is equally soft but creates a denser fabric that will definitely keep out the cold.


The tones work so nicely together, don't you think?  Thanks, Gail, for knitting this with me.  BFF, always!

  8. It looks great! This is the second BFF cowl I've seen in a span of a month or two, and they both have looked so cozy.

    I'd like to work on one, but the only problem is that I don't have any knitting BFFs.

    Would making both parts myself be too pathetic? :P

  14. They certainly work for me, it looks fabulous!

    I'm knitting a cowl right now, among a million other things! Okay, that's an exaggeration, but no wonder I never finish anything!!

    Ooh, I meant to say, there's a woolly giveaway over at my blog just now, if you're interested :)
