Cowl Kits

July 25, 2016

What is a cowl?  A cowl is a shorter, sometimes thicker, circular version of a scarf.  I love cowls because they go over coats adding warmth without bulk.  If you knit them wide enough, they can act like a hat by just pulling them up over your head.  They are a great way to try out new stitch patterns or use up scraps of yarn.  
I love cowls because it just doesn't feel like you have to make the same commitment to the project as is required for a scarf.  It feels a less constrained, and easier to me.   I like working in the round and just buzzing along.  
The Stars & Stripes Cowl kit is a bundle of mini's with a neutral base in the Budding Tracks yarn. The star burst pattern is fun, simple and a great accent for all the bright mini colors. The kit can make either a snug, wide cowl or a more relaxed, longer cowl - you make the choice!  
Take all of the colors of from the mini's and line them up in a row until you get a color progression that you like. I usually snap a picture of my favorite progression to help remind me of the correct order. The other option is bold, by just grabbing the colors as you reach for them results in a completely random color order.  The Stars & Stripes Cowl kit is an inexpensive and fun way to see a wide selection of Knitting Rose Yarns bison blend Budding Tracks yarn colors. Great as a gift or a quick project, order yours and get started.

It is very liberating to rip out projects that you do not love.  Don't let a project persuade you into keeping it, just because you have worked on it for a time.
