  • I’d love to do this for a friend confined to a wheel chair and we’re always looking to try something colorful and warm as she always feels the cold so acutely

    I would make this for my mother in law. And maybe my sisters and maybe one for myself.

    I would make this for my best friend who lives in northern Idaho where it gets really cold.

  • I have a close friend who likes to wear scarves close to her neck, so I think she’d like this in a dark teal. And then I’d make one just like it for myself!

    Me i love the buttons so you can take on and off without over the head!

  • I would make it for my mother-in-law. In her favourite colour. She knits for everybody else, and really deserves something pretty for herself.

  • I agree with myrnam above. It would be nice to also include the suggested yarn weight so we can substitute. I looked up this yarn and it says Super Bulky, which I assume is the same as our #6 here in the US. I am hoping to make one for my mother and myself!

    I’d crochet this cowl for my “adopted” daughter/best friend. She’s always cold & this would warm her up

    I think this would actually be better for a man– I can see my husband wearing it with his peacoat.

    Love cherry red! I would make this cowl for my daughter, who wears a lot of cowls and loves this color.

  • for me me me. In different colors to go with each of my coats & jackets. I have a short neck so the cowls most knitters make are too bulky for me. This pattern looks just right.

    I love the cable look! If I was to crochet this, I would give it to one of my sisters-in-law.

    Reply
  • I meant to say hook number. I guess this pattern would take a number 6 yarn. If I know the number I can check my own stash. I checked your store and could not find Linraft yarn. Thanks Myrna
