Now, it is as if we have come full circle and a cowl is a fashion garment for women. It covers the neck and/or the head, keeps us warm and gives us a canvas for playing with color, design and knitting stitch patterns. How wonderful is that!
Cat Bordhi uses a cowl to teach and practice various knitting skills in her design Seven Wonders Cowl including cast-ons, reading charts, working cables, binding off and more. Kiwi Knitting held a project class with Cat Bordhi's pattern. This class had a great time - laughing, knitting and learning. Here are a two of the completed cowls from the class.
Knitters at Kiwi Knitting had a great time playing with this garment. They were delighted with how different they turned out for each of them.
Project classes are so much fun – learning and knitting with others.
