New pattern: Cursory Cowl

Just in time for the fourth-quarter Team Sexy Knitter KAL, I've released a new pattern: Cursory Cowl!

This cowl, worked in Knit Collage's Rolling Stone yarn, uses just 35 yards of super bulky yarn. You'll be finished almost as soon as you've started!

this wooly, thick-and-thin yarn is spun with delightful embellishments like paisleys, sequins, and glittery Angelina

Once you cast on, you'll simply work the easy, 2-stitch pattern repeat until you're almost out of yarn, making good use of every inch in the skein. This also means that this pattern is wonderfully customizable for any weight of yarn or needle size! Simply cast on your desired number of stitches and get going. I happen to love the vibrant, color-explosion nature of the original sample, but if you're looking for something a little more neutral, this would be great in a solid color with a single color of coordinating ribbon. In fact, if you don't love the fringes you could even just weave one long strand of ribbon through all the yarn over holes, and give yourself a completely different look!

The generous folks over at Knit Collage have gifted me 2 lovely skeins of yarn to give away in conjunction with this pattern's release. Aren't they gorgeous?

So here’s what we are going to do. Because this is SUCH a quick knit, completing a Cursory Cowl by October 31 will make you eligible to win one of these skeins of yarn! I will be selecting 2 winners at random from the pool of completed cowls, so the more you knit, the more your chances of winning!

You do not have to be a member of my Ravelry group to participate in this mini-KAL, but we do have an active thread for folks who would like to participate. If you're a group member, you can also use this project in our regular, 4th quarter KAL, which will double your chances of winning something awesome. All are welcome!
