I bought some bright red yarn with the intention of making the Simple Snood from ‘Love to Knit’ but I decided that the pattern was a bit too boring once I had started knitting it so I turned to Ravelry. I was browsing the recent FOs and I came across this cowl that I just had to make so I went over to her blog and she had a free pattern for it! I’d never used the feather and fan stitch before but I really like it. It’s easy and makes such a nice pattern.

I really like this cowl and it’s perfect for just stuffing in a handbag instead of carrying a scarf around. It’s also really good now that the weather is (supposed to be) changing. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Ranch Red and 6mm 16inch circs. This is such a quick and easy knit and great for using up leftover yarn!
