With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Knitted Cowl

Knitted Cowl

 I can't seem to put down my knitting needles and made more knitted cowl/neck warmers!

They work up fast and are fun to make using the pattern from Jersey Shore Alpacas and a slightly modified pattern. For bulky yarn I cast on 64 and use no. 10 knitting needles.  For lighter yarn, I cast on 72 and use a no. 8 or 9 needle but you can use this as a guide for the yarn of your choose.
 If the yarn is a solid color, I usually add the checkered-pattern. I prefer to continue with just the stockinette stitch for variegated yarn but not always.
 I love the warm vibrant colors in this one.
I found this bamboo/cotton/acrylic yarn in a clearance bin for $2.15.  It is very soft!

Though the projects in this post are not made with alpaca yarn, the one I made and posted here was.  It is a most lovely yarn that was purchased at Jersey Shore Alpacas.
This beautiful note card is the work of Juan, an 18 year-old deaf man living at Efata Children's Home in Lima, Peru. Jersey Shore Alpacas offer his note cards as well as beautiful knitting from a group of ladies who are staff and friends of Efata Ministries. Efata maintains a Christian school and orphanage for deaf children, Prices reflect the fair trade arrangement Jersey Shore Alpacas has with Juan and these ladies

Love your cowls. Such pretty colors. I've never been able to get the hang of knitting for some reason.

I'm going to try your cowl pattern. I've been knitting shawls. A friend of mine asked if they would be ready by Christmas and I told her YES ... maybe not Christmas 2016, but for sure by 2017! Ha! I should have been smart like you and stuck with cowls! :) :)

Your cowls are gorgeous! I always wish I was knitting but it seems other things take me away these days. You inspire me to get back to my knitting projects!
