After using up that super-bulky Lion Brand stuff last week, I thought, “Hmm… that sure went fast! Don’t I have some more of that stuff somewhere?” I vaguely remembered having bought some super-bulky yarn on sale in order to make a Perpetually Persistent Cowl.
It took a while to find the yarn (Cascade Lana Grande). It had been so long since I bought it that it had sunk to the bottom of the storage bin.
This started out being a Perpetually Persistent Cowl. But I was really comfortable on the couch and I couldn’t be bothered to get up and find the pattern. So I just went with a simple cable (traveling stitch?) pattern off the top of my head.
I like the height (a full 12″) but it fits snugly around the neck. Which, in a cowl this bulky, makes me a little claustrophobic. Finding myself with an entire leftover ball of yarn, I knit the second cowl a little bit longer.
It’s in seed stitch as a nod to the famous GAP-Tastic Cowl. Which I probably could have made if I hadn’t started with that cabled cowl first. Oh well!
