  • I’m sure I posted a comment, and now it is gone!
    I admired cowl, model, and especially the faux leopard sweater, which reminds me of one from 1986 or so, a VK pattern by some venerable designer. So nice to see the classics come back in style!

  • Hi Mary! I made a bonedheaded mistake and deleted the published blog instead of the draft! Had to do some fancy dancing to get it back up again, but the comment was a casualty; I never even saw it!
    I’ve learned not to say: “Cool! We had that in the 80s!” to the teen. They think they invented the faux leopard sweater you know.

  • I LOVE this! I ‘m pretty sure everyone on my Christmas list will, too. Thank you!

  • Hi Kay, I just love this pattern,color and that gorgeous model! She just gets more beautiful every time I see a photo!! I love that stitch… I think I need to go find some yarn and start a new scarf…down side on my end,I have 4 girls who will want it! That’s a lot of knitting!!

  • Ha! All photographed up. Brilliant job. Glad you liked the stitch x x x

  • … donuts look the same up or down … madame … tournez la photo en bas svp … is upside down … ha ha … bbb … a rhinebeck en cowl!

  • You are no idiot, just too funny. Thanks for the laugh and the beautiful cowl pattern. I’ve now got an excuse to buy that cashmere yarn I saw the other day–happy dance! p.s. Love Ann’s beautiful blanket, too.

  • Love it , although slightly wistful to see you leave the honey cowl behind…
    perhaps you will be posing in this one for the Rhinebeck Style photo shoot Sunday (and for anyone reading this who also wants to pose, stop by, please, the more the merrier)

  • Awesome stitch, model, fiber and color!

  • Just to be clear, you’re not suggesting we knit this WHILE driving to Rhinebeck. I just started a cashmere tub scarf but maybe I’ll do your cowl instead. Let the cowling begin…

  • Thank you so much for this, Kay. It is truly just what I was looking for. Fairly easy (where I live only garter stitch and stockinette are truly easy) and interesting at the same time. Your beautiful model sets it off just perfectly. And that faux leopard sweater (complete with rolled cuff 3/4 sleeves) has my name on it!

  • Love the beauty and simplicity of the cowl pattern (and the beauty of the model) but question the statement, “for times when one wants to tone down the Fiber Freak signals one is broadcasting.” ?!? I do not understand this impulse. What is this “tone down” of which you speak? I say, Do Not Tone Down the Handmades. Instead, seek out the company of other knitters, yarn shops, fabric stores, and fiber festivals and be content… ; )

  • Carrie is growing up. The kids seem to do that, and so fast.

  • Love that cowl, will definitely have to make one or ten of them. Have fun at Rhinebeck. One year, I hope to actually get there!

  • Beautiful model.
    Beautiful cowl.
    God bless.
    LoveDiane

  • Ah, boneheadedness, I get it. Nice save.

  • Thank you for such a timely FREE gift! Holidays, here we come!

  • I’m still putting off the holiday knitting. I know! What am I thinking? Obviously I’m going to be the crazy woman knitting at the end of December, telling the husband “One more row and then these mittens will be done for Joe.”

  • [email protected] LOVE the model – your beautiful daughter is really growing up!!
    Love the pattern – thank you! I did want to know what you think of substituting Rowan CashSoft for the Jade Sapphire (I cannot afford that right now – someday!) with this pattern?
    Thanks again!
