Sophia Kids Cowl

2.20.2013


Surely you must know by now that I'm crazy.  I've been keeping some project or another on the knitting needles since I learned how at the beginning of the year.  I'm trying to make sure I don't forget, so I figured I might as well keep practicing!


I love sitting in bed and knitting, warm and cozy.  This time of year is the hardest for me to want to stay up late and get crafty.  So knitting has been this fun little adventure for me.  I can't wait to make some leg warmers!


I'm trying not to build up a stash of yarns like I've done with fabric, ooops.  So I had ordered some Amy Butler Aran Yarn intending to make a cowl for Natalie.  She loves purple and this turned out to be the perfect project!  I was hestitant to start it, but once I got going it was really quick.  It's the Sophia Cowl (a free tutorial) by Green Bee Patterns.  I had been oogling it ever since they shared it.


She loves it, wore it the WHOLE day after I finished it, and I'm glad to have one more knitting project under my belt!

  1. It's so cute. It looks a lot like the background of the "winner" sign from the last post. Is that it? I was wondering how you made that graphic.

  6. You're not crazy. But you are a very quick study, that is for sure! I think we started learning to knit at about the same time, but I am still working on my first project--a dishtowel. I love all the stolen moments of crafting that knitting allows.

  7. If you enjoyed that you could try the Gap-Tastic Cowl pattern. That's a bit like this one but HUUUUUGE!!! I made one in almost exactly the same colour as yours. http://www.stitchedtogether.co.uk/2011/11/neck-warmer-extraordinaire.html

    1. I've made a Gap-Tastic Cowl as well with super yummy Noro silk yarn (gifty from hubby). Love it!

  8. SO CUTE!! Knitting is SUPER addictive, and I agree - so nice to knit on the couch, in the car, those times when sewing is impossible. I need to start blogging my projects! I have three things knitted and nothing to show for it. Sheesh!

    PS - look at little miss earrings - are those new??

  9. Looks very cute! Like you, I also just started knitting (Sept/Oct last year) and I'm trying not to hoard yarn. Doing good so far, haha :). Have fun knitting! I haven't properly sewn anything since getting into knitting, but now my fingers are itching to get back to sewing!

  10. I have loved watching your immersion into knitting! It's definitely a good idea to keep the rust off the needles - I knitted a hat after too long a break from it and knitted into the back of each stitch creating an unintentional ridge and slight twist. Not bad looking, but not what the pattern called for!

  11. Cute! Jeremy's grandma showed us how to crochet while she lived with us this summer...it's been fun making all sorts of stuff, especially since it's so portable :) Nice work Anna!
