A chillly March morn, so I'll quickly show you another woolly cowl

It really has been a beautiful week here in Suffolk, though today was certainly cowl wearing weather again on the walk to school. Whilst this cowl may be cosy the colour is certainly springlike. Not that this has stopped me wearing it constantly this winter... I love it
 A dream to knit... my favourite moss stitch which took no time at all with this wool and chunky needles. The pattern is the (free!) Marian cowl by Jane Richmond knitted in Stitch and Story's chunky yarn.
This wool is deliciously squishy and oh so soft. I used up all of two balls of lime yellow knitted on 12 mm needles. The pattern suggests a chunkier wool and 15 mm needles, so mine is just a chunky cowl as opposed to the super bulky cowl of the original
I would love to make myself many more using some other gorgeous Stitch and Story colours. The only negative thing about knitting this was Mr R asking if I could make less noise. Apparently those chunky wooden needles are just too click clacky. Small price to pay I say for such deliciousness.
