Time to Make Warm Stuff

easy knit cowl, free chunky cowl pattern, easy cowl pattern, knit-up quick cowl, stripe cowl

I can't believe that within the space of a week the seasons  shifted from Summer to Autumn. That quickly.
Two weeks last Thursday was hot, and I mean late 20s, but now it's positively chilly. Ok,….it's September, and all the signs have been there for a while - southbound geese, that familiar damp chill at the beginning and end of the day, and the mornings and evenings getting slowly darker. Yes, there'll still be the odd sunny day...thankfully. but let's face it - it's time to fold away the Tshirts, and to reluctantly box away the sandals, in the realisation that the fabulous summer we've had this year is drawing to a close. It's time to rifle through that Jumper drawer and panic that you have nowhere near enough woolies to see you through to the spring. Last winter was coooold and long. This year I plan on doing a lot less shivering.
It's time to wrap up.
It's time to get those needles and hooks going. 
It's time to make warm stuff.
So.... where to start? the question. How about something small… and quick and easy. What is turning out to be THE accessory of the decade, it seems,....

 .....A nice chunky knitted cowl to start off the chilly season. The featured pattern provides instructions for a three colour stripe but can be easily changed - different colours, more stripe variations, or simply just plain. Perfect as a quick project for those with a boredom threshold like mine, ie low. Knits up in a couple of evenings and it's versatile.... can be worn however you like. 
Looks so cozy doesn't it. It is.
