2010 Knitting Trends - The Knitted Cowl

Anyone who has flipped through the knitting magazines lately will have noticed that the knitted cowl is everywhere. For those of you who are just as confused about the cowl as I was, it's basically an oversized neckwarmer, a great project to use up the odd ball or two of yarn and goes much faster than a scarf.

Here are some excellent cowl knitting patterns:

knittydeepfall2010eleanoreThe Eleanore Cowl from the Deep Fall 2010 issue of knitty has finally won me over to knitted cowls. It looks simple and elegant and quick to knit. It's one of the best patterns of the whole issue of knitty.




Cowl250The Cabled Feather Cowl by Cindy Craig looks a little simpler than The Eleanore Cowl and features cables and lace. Follow the link and the author recommends a couple of different yarns that would work with the pattern.




cowldcowlThe cowl'd and frosting morning by Kelly Herdrich is an easy cowl knitting pattern. It's great if you're looking for something quick to knit because it's knitted in a chunky yarn.



luciouscowlThe Lush-ious Cowl by Linda Frydl is wonderfully graphical. It's a free pattern available on Ravelry, using Classic Elite's Lush yarn.



starcrossedcowlThe Star Crossed Cowl by Melissa Beach is inspired by the slouchy hat of the same name, but as seen in the photo looks great on guys.

What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
