Are you a Cowl Girl?

Are you a scarf or cowl person?  I've just come to the realization that I'm more of a cowl girl. I wear scarves but I wear cowls more.  Cowls stay in place.  There's no ends to come loose and droop down into my kid's artwork/food/random mess.  When I'm working I teach Kindergarten  . . . definitely no dangly pieces of clothing there.

I've had this scarf for quite a while and I've worn it in the winter as an outdoor scarf in November and March but then didn't really get much use out of it.  So I decided to stitch the ends together to make a cowl.

Another thing I realized . . . I never blocked it!  Here it is blocking.

Pattern: Wakefield Scarf   (free pattern)
Yarn:  I have no idea, some sort of wool with a tiny bit of silk.  Something that matched the gauge suggested.

I love it!  Now I wear it all the time, sometimes as an outdoor scarf and sometimes as an accessory.  What do you prefer scarves or cowls?


  1. Definitely a cowl girl! I like my cowls to morf into snoods on cold days too!

  2. Anything to to be cozy and warm. Thanks Jenny.
