Here it is!
Photo by Gary Amara PhotographyVite Cowl by Kristi Johnson, calls for super bulky yarn and size 15 needles. I used bulky yarn and size 13 needles. I really wanted to use this skein of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky that I purchased at Goodwill for $1.99 (minus 10%, I love my discount card!), and I thought that a slightly smaller version might suit me better anyway. Fortunately, I think I was right. This yarn was lovely to knit with and I while I love a bargain, I would happily pay full price for it in the future.
I highly recommend this pattern. This was my first attempt at knitting a pattern like this, and I loved seeing the leaves that make up this cowl take shape. I was delighted to find that I was eventually able to "read my knitting" instead of reading the pattern which enabled me to knit it up very quickly!
This cowl has been one of my go-to items in the morning since its completion. It is so pretty that I do not think twice about leaving it on all day at work (I often find it too cold in the office). I just love it!
