A tale of 4 cowls

My best friend has the misfortune of supporting a football team with terrible colours.

Its also difficult to find nice options in the predominantly male clothing options (or icky t-shirts) available.
So I was thinking about this and made a drunken yarn purchase.
I found this yarn on etsy and just had to!

So now I’m trying to find the perfect pattern.

I’ve narrowed it down to the following. Clicking the photo will take you to it’s ravelry page.

Weeble-wobble cowl.
This has interesting construction and I’m interested to see how it’s made.

Stratosphere Cowl
This one has an interesting zig zag part but would show off the different colours really well.

Chevron Sunshine
I’ve not done chevrons before and think that this pattern would also show off the brown & gold nicely.

Woodstack
I really like the lace on this. It would be a bit of a challenge but I still think its elegant without being too much.

Ultimately the decision will be made by the recipient, but tell me what your favourite is.
Is there a pattern you’d recommend? Is the perfect pattern not in my shortlist?

  1. I voted for Chevron because that is one of my favorite patterns I’ve yet to make (haha). For real, Katie (the designer) is amazing. Her patterns are extremely well written and she is so helpful if you have any questions. On top of all that, I think the pattern and that yarn will match up wonderfully.

Thanks for stopping by!
