Two-Hour Cowl

Yes, you read that right: two hours. I’m home sick with strep throat (thanks to the brother whom I saw at a birthday party on Saturday) so I spent the morning watching West Side Story and knitting a simple cowl with my new LB Art Yarn. I tried a pattern with a dropped-stitch pattern but it was making me irritated and I wanted to just enjoy this yarn, so a plain stockinette cowl was what I needed.


I cast on 56 on size 15 needles, did 4 rows of 2×2 rib, and knit until it felt right. Somehow I guessed perfectly because I ended up with less than a yard left over! And I love my new cowl…but now I need more of this yarn! It’s LB Art Yarn on Etsy and this color is called Star Stuff. She doesn’t have any of that color right now, but I’m hoping for more in the future. What’s your favorite sick-day project?

  1. Oh my goodness that’s stunning! I enjoy working on my crochet blankets when I’m not feeling well. Hope you are feeling better soon!

  2. I hope you feel better! That cowl looks luscious, though, and the yarn is amazing.

    My favorite sick day project is a video game. Usually by the time I admit to being sick, I’m too muzzy-headed for knitting.

  3. I’m sorry you’re sick 😦 But happy you were able to finish a beautiful project! 2 hours, I’m seriously impressed – that cowl would take me at least 5 times longer!
