christmas knitting 911 - the Mallory Cowl Pattern

Pattern: The Mallory Cowl (Child Version and Adult Version)
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers in colorway 9322

what's this another cowl? yep, it's a  what can i say?  how could i deny the loving request of my 4 1/2 year old daughter?  she saw me enjoying my many new cowls and begged to have one just for her.  so i thought i would use a skein of cascade 220 heathers that i had in my stash and whip her up a super cozy turquoise cowl!

with yarn  held double you get a squishy, yummy warm cowl.  something fun for them to put on that's big enough to keep them warm but not too big that it won't fit under their coats.  the nice thing about cowls is that my daughter will always rip her scarf off and she leaves her cowls alone.  no knots or ends to strangle on and it's tucked under her coat and out of her way when she plays.

i think she likes!  the other fun thing about this cowl is it's a simple knit/purl combo rib that is super easy for a beginner to practice knitting on but also a great project for an advanced knitter to use that special yarn they want to showcase.  i also think the pattern would be perfect for both boys and girls to wear.  cowls are versatile and stylish.  wanna make one??
