Scarves and cowls

I decided I wanted to make a scarf. And I did. But it took me far longer than it would have a few years ago! Part of that is my attention span. heh But regardless, I did finish a scarf and here is the proof.

The yarn used is I Love This Yarn worsted weight in the color Terra Cotta. The pattern is simply dc across. I think I worked 30 chains. I used an H hook.

I made it long - a full 6' and 9" wide. Hopefully it will keep someone warm during the cold days. Not here in Louisiana, of course. We do have some cold days but this week we are back to highs in the 70s.

I probably own too many scarves for the few days of weather cold enough to don one. LOL In any case, my favorite neckwear these days are the two cowls my daughter made me. They keep me toasty warm and I don't have to worry about where they will hang. These are some my daughter has made - aren't they gorgeous? I have a black one and a dark blue one. They are knitted and the free pattern can be found at Ravelry.Gap-tastic-cowl by Jen Geigley
