I love wearing cowls in the winter, they keep me nice and warm. There are so many great patterns out there, and this is one of my favorites.
I used some fingering weight yarn held double for this project. I don't know what kind of yarn it is, it was just in a plastic bag that was given to me. It does have some shine to it and the stitch definition is great.
The pattern I used was originally free, but now will cost money to get. Featherbelle is a well-written pattern that was interesting to knit and made a really nice cowl.
