So, I had this skein of giant, super bulky yarn in a delicious color and I needed a project for it.  I looked around online for a cowl pattern and then decided, heck, I don't have time to follow patterns, I'll just make one up myself.

And so, I did just that.

Because it was slightly huge, I decided to use an amazingly cool brooch that AsphaltQueen made to close it up and to make it fit more snugly.

I like it! Simple, easy and it didn't take a long amount of time.  The best part?? I'm down one skein of stash!

Looks great on you, Lapoli!  I'm totally loving the color too...it looks very similar to the lettuce colorway that malabrigo has, not to mention that the color looks great with your coral colored coat!

I'm totally obsessed with cowls this winter. Yours is no exception! The color is divine and it looks so good with your jacket - which is also totally kick-ass. Oh and so is that brooch! Lovin' the whole look Smiley.

You have an own designed cowl! A really good-looking own-designed cowl!

Please can you pass on the pattern to those of us who may need a neck-warmer this winter?
