FO: Circle scarf vs. cowl
I came home from a meeting the other week wearing my most beloved FO in recent memory. My husband said, "Oh! You have a circle scarf!" My reply? "No, I knit my own cowl." As the husband of an avid knitter, I would have expected him to incorporate the word cowl into his vocabulary. Much the way that I throw around words like router or end grain.
So I ask you - it is really called a circle scarf? Or is that what men call them, while us gals refer to them as cowls? Or am I making a mountain out of a mole hill?
Either way, it is lovely. The perfect color (it goes with red, brown, turquoise, black, gray...) and the perfect size. I bound off at a narrower width then I first expected, but I am so happy with the sizing - and now I have extra yarn to keep for another future project. Finished measurements are approximately 24 inches in diameter, and 7 inches wide. The pattern can be found for free here.
