Slipping Outside Cowl

Slipping Outside Cowl
Slipping Outside Cowl

"This cowl is perfect to wear when you go exploring. It will transition nicely between a walk downtown and a hike in the woods. Easy and fun to knit, “Slipping Outside” is worked entirely in the round. It begins and ends with garter stitch while an easy to memorize slip stitch pattern makes up most of the piece. It’s reversible too! The opposite side is an interesting ribbing pattern, so you can change it with your mood!"

What a lovely cowl. It seems easy and versatile, which is the best combo.

A lovely cowl with easy to follow directions. Thank you test knitter. I prefer cowls like this one because I can wear it like a hood if the weather calls for it. It is always a nice addition to an outfit and also when the weather gets colder.

When it comes time to think about making cowls for fall and winter, this pattern should be on my list. It is a simple yet pretty appearance, and should not take too long using the bulky/chunky yarn. I'm sure it would look lovely in almost any color you wanted to use.

I was one of the test knitters for this cowl. It's a big, soft, warm quick knit and would make a lovely gift, if you can part with it! It's easy and looks awesome, a good combination.
