Wednesdays Are For Knitting: Leaving Cowl

Back in November I signed up for a mystery knit for a cowl and, as it turned out, I didn’t care for the pattern. I had purchased some pretty yarn, though, and I was committed to making a cowl and just needed to find a different pattern. The Leaving Cowl was the perfect choice.

The pattern is free and well written. It’s easy to follow and the simple leaf pattern knits up quickly.

The yarn is Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport in a beautiful shade of red called Ruby.

It’s soft and drape-y and made a lovely birthday present for Doreen.

She told me on Friday that she has worn it every day since I gave it to her back in December. A knitter can’t ask for more than that.

    It’s beautiful and I love the color!! I have to admit that the cowl design of the KAL that I am working on has been deeply modified because I know Hannah would not love it and it is for her. The benefits of being way behind on a KAL. LOL.

    I bet that color looks fabulous on Doreen!

    What a lovely cowl! I always wonder how non-knitters manage in winter, and I guess the lucky ones do it by having knitting friends. Lucky Doreen!

    That red is to die for! There’s nothing better than having something you’ve knitted worn….a lot!

    Really pretty cowl! the color and the pattern. And since I love leaves – I’m off to print it off! I’ve used the Venezia Worsted before – but never sportweight…
    It is nice yarn….
