Blinding Knitwear: Highlighter Cowl

Remember this skein, from the Taos Wool Festival? I was between a hat and a cowl, and I decided to go with a cowl. The more I looked at the yarn, the more I realized it was made up of the colors you find in a pack of highlighters, and I wanted to play that up.

I chose a pattern that used slipped yarnovers, to really give a slash-y, highlighted look to the bright yarn.

I made it extra big, so that it would fall more into the mod/trendy "infinity" scarf realm of cowls.

It can be worn long and looped like the above, which is still keeping me pretty toasty.

It is also long and stretchy enough to be worn doubled up into a really cozy cowl. This was fun and fast, and if I see Fiber Fanatic at another wool festival, I will definitely be snatching up more yarn!

Such a fun cowl!

And speaking of knitting, we love our Christmas stockings :)
