The guy next door cowl

Or otherwise known as a cowl for Stu! Ive been meaning to blog about this cowl for ages. Stu asked me to knit him something a while ago, but he is really fussy and I didn't want to put in lots of time and effort if he wasn't go to wear/use the finished product! We did finially find something he would wear though, Stu drives a motorbike and wears buffs and cowls to keep his neck warm. I found this pattern and thought it would be perfect. Thankfully Stu agreed and I even let him choose the yarn.

 I really enjoyed knitting this once I got the pattern repeat memorised. It wasn't a very complicated pattern repeat but my poor pregnancy (yes I am using baby brain as an excuse!) brain did struggle at the beginning. Thankfully the pattern and the colour Stu chose were both rather forgiving! Once I got going though it didn't take very long to knit up and was off the needles before I knew it! 



Stu was really pleased with it and couldn't wait for it to be blocked so he could wear it! I also have enough yarn left over that I am going to make a matching one for Angus! 



Stu got a bit carried away with posing in the next photo, apparently this is his mysterious look! I think it's safe to say he like the cowl.

  8. Looking good. I never really thought about wearing a cowl on the bike. That's a great idea and would help extend my riding season :)
