FO: Garter Stitch Cowl

Garter Stitch Cowl
My garter stitch cowl is finished! This took a wee bit too long to complete—I think I cast it on around the beginning of January and just finished it this weekend.

The yarn is Hedgehog Fibres Twist Sock in Truffle, which was lovely to work with. I didn’t use a pattern—just counted up a length of stitches that looked right to me, then knitted rows and rows of garter stitch. I worked the piece flat, then seamed it at the end.

Had to throw a filter on this selfie because I was not feeling the greatest on that day. 😣

It’s a nice, lightweight piece, but since it’s fingering weight yarn, it’s not the cushiest of cowls. That’s ok, but I think I prefer wearing cowls that are bulkier since they’re cozier and warmer. If I were to knit this again, I’d make it much wider so that it could be folded—which would require another skein of yarn.

Detailed specs: US size 5 needles for the body of the piece and size 10 needles for the bind off. Used almost the entire skein of yarn.
