Comfort Cowl Test Knit

Yes, spring is beginning to rear it’s lovely head here on the east coast, but I’m knitting up a fine collection for fall/winter 2012. Blame it on some great test knits too tempting to resist!

Pattern: Comfort Cowl
YarnCascade 220 Heathers, Aspen (2 skeins)
Needles:
 US 8 / 5 mm

Meet Comfort Cowl, the newly released pattern from Madeleine, aka Yarn Madness on Ravelry. Here in Canada, you can’t have too many warm and cozy accessories for your neck.

This is essentially an infinity scarf and I love how it wraps around you twice to give you that much needed cozy warm feeling. It’s definitely named well!

I’ve worn it a few times already and I can attest to it’s comfort!  Would make a great gift for someone next Christmas. 🙂

  1. Very nice! I’m starting to think that I should look more into infinity scarves, after seeing a few really nice ones on your blog!

  2. This post recommends size US 8 / 5mm needles, whereas the pattern recommends size US 7 / 4.5mm. Is your recommendation an adjustment to the pattern upon necessity?

    1. Hi, thanks for your comment. As with all projects, you need to do a swatch in order to ensure that you get the same gauge as the original designer did. That’s how you pick your needle size. If I’m a tight knitter for example, I’ll probably need to use a larger needle. I hope that helps!
