|Brooke rec'd the green mix|
I tried it with bulky and super bulky. It takes 2 skeins and I chose 2 different colors. I'm sure a 3rd skein/color would look great, too.
|Nice and long - acrylic|
|no needles needed|
|the cowl can be doubled or tripled up|
|alpaca/acrylic mix in bulky|
Marlyse is rocking this one!
Her granddaughters, Whitney and Rayleigh will try to make some soon
August 2016: Taught my fellow volunteers at DC Booth Fish Hatchery to make a cowl! What fun it was to watch their faces as we got started! They did a great job with them. Well, most did a great job. One of the funniest parts of the evening was when Julie showed up with her laundry basket. She had asked her hubs, Ron, what we said this morning about crafts in the volunteer mtg she had to miss. He said "they said to bring a laundry basket". But because she doesn't always read her emails, she missed the part about bringing yarn. So she showed up with her basket, but no yarn to knit with. LOL!! But she watched, learned, and helped!
|Julie making Rocky feel welcome|
|Marie and Jan got the hang of it|

|Marie's finished product -- she used 2 skeins of bulky|
|Cheryl used one skein of bulky and one skein of homespun|
|I used 2 skeins of Wool-Ease super bulky|
