Knit ribbed cowl

Hi everyone!

I just looked back to the date of my last post, it's almost half a month I didn't have any updates on my blog. Life has so many distractions to keep us away from things we would love to do... But I'm doing well and happy to be back now. I would want to thank you to all my bloggy friends, who always stop by for a visit, or to leave words of encouragement on my crafting projects, or just simply to say "Hello"... That means so much to me.

Well, not much for my post today, as I don't have many projects working on recently. I have just finished a cowl that I tried each moment I had the last few weeks to knit for my sweet Mom, and I'm so happy to show you here:


It's a ribbed cowl I made using this pattern from Lion Brand. It's so fun to make and easpecially very easy to such a beginer like me!


This is the first time I made my mom a cowl. She often wraps a scarf around her neck at night not to get cough. The combination of the yarn and the ridges makes it looks thick and very soft that she can wear during the cold days... I will make her a new scarf to use alternatively with the current one.


Maybe it's one of characteristics of tropical climate, sometimes very hot and dry all day, but getting so cold at night, that's why people still need to keep warm even though most of people here wear a lace scarf mainly for being fashionable!


In case you wonder, I made the cowl with three skeins of this yarn, 6.00mm circular knitting needles.

Still have some yarn left, I will make her a hat to have a set of "winter collection" (hehe). I just found a lovely hat pattern also from Lion Brand, hope I won't run out of yarn halfway! Wish me luck! :)


Thank you so much for your time, wishing a gorgeous new week to you all! x
