My Free Patterns

Later, Gator

Well, thank heavens for small projects! I feel like I'd never finish a project if it weren't for these little ones. It didn't take long to whip up this small cowl. Ok, I lie a little bit, I ripped it back twice before I was happy. Then I had to cast off twice because the first time was too tight.





The pattern is free (hurray), and called Later, Gator.  The yarn is Sirdar Softspun DK. And yeah, it is very, very soft! I think it will stretch out a fair bit, which is a good thing, as I don't like things too tight around my neck.  Now, for a picture that doesn't look much like the actual color:



So that's my picture heavy post for this week.  I'm knitting another cowl, so hopefully I'll see you again next week!  

Happy Crafting!
