I choose to knit the 'Accordion Cowl' that I saw on Cornflower Blue Studio's blog. It is very simple and knits up in a night (or 2).
120 Stitches on circular needles, knit 5 rows plain, then 5 rows purl, repeat and bind off when ready.
At one point, I left my knitting on the couch whilst I went to work and my son must have been inspecting it for when I came home, he casually mentioned that he really liked it .. and could he perhaps, maybe, have a cowl knitted in this yarn. I did a bit of a double-take. Mainly because he had taken the time to have a look at something I was doing.
My son is a talented classical guitarist and has been accepted into a music school to study for a Bachelor of Music. He is after something different but he has to be able to play guitar whilst wearing it.
We decided on the 'Bandana Cowl' by the Purl Bee. This would keep him warm but is close fitting and will not get in the way of his guitar playing.
I still have a few skeins left so it might be time to knit a cowl for me .. one day.
