Ribbed Cowl

Ribbed Cowl - Designed by Shannon Dunbabin So, I found myself in a situation where I had to sit for an entire day and needed something to keep my hands busy, but I had to be involved in conversation the entire day.  Around this same point in time, I realized that we didn't have any cowls knit in Pure Alpaca which is perfect for a cowl and I had great intentions to do a few rows of ribbing with a simple lace pattern.  Well, I suddenly realized that I had several inches of ribbing and it was squishy, soft, and warm.  So, I made the best of it and just continued in 2 x 2 rib.  I picked 2 denimy heathers, but it would look great in a variety of other color combinations. The pattern is quite simple - cast on 88 stitches using size 9 needles.  Join in the round.  Do K2, P2 until reach desired length.  Bind off.  Weave in ends.  Enjoy.
