Gaptastic Cowl

I know…I know.  It’s glorious weather out there and here I am, still babbling on about winter woolies. But this was another yarnie gift from a friend.  Thankfully this was only from the Christmas just gone!

There’s not much to say about the Gaptastic Cowl, other than it is a super simple knit, and a very wearable thing.  It’s been knitted 18390 times, according to Ravelry. That many people can’t be wrong.

Before the delicious sunshine arrived, this was heavily in rotation to keep me toasty on the school run.  I’d been planning to make it for forever and never got around to it.  I wish I hadn’t waited so long!

The yarn is lush!  It’s Debbie Bliss Winter Garden, which is sadly discontinued.  It’s a shame because it’s just the perfect yarn for this cowl.  Soft and cosy and lightweight.  The colour is a misty grey blue with delicious flecks of turquoise, chartreuse and white.

Basically, it’s the perfect combination of pattern and yarn.  And I love it!

      Thank you. Today is so cold and wet that it might just get worn! I’ve got the heating on. In June!

  4. Super cute! And that yarn! The little bits and bobbles of color mixed with the gray…just lovely! I am obsessed with handmade scarves and cowls…I may have to head to ravelry to add this one to my list of projects! I just did a crocheted hat post in the middle of summer…how funny! We must be yearning for that cooler weather full of warm and cozy projects!

      Thank you! The yarn is awesome. Such a pity it’s discontinued, but still to be found with a quick internet search.
      Learning to crochet is on my list for autumn. I’m always yearning for cold, crisp, clear days. Not really a fan of the heat, I’ll be honest!
