1/4 lb. Cowl

The 4!Ounce!Challenge! on Ravelry was such a great motivator to come up with a way to use 4oz. of fibre, since it's such a common amount to buy. Here is the finished version of my pattern - it's available free on the sidebar.

I made two versions - one in dk-weight with button holes and this one in worsted weight which has button loops. This Hello Yarn Falklands top in "Grouch" colorway which the fabulous Lisa generously sent to me was such a wonderful thing to spin and knit with. You fiber club people are (as I always suspected) extremely lucky!

Winter is coming. You need a warm neck or you'll get sick. Happy knitting!


  1. chris, this is lovely, especially with that purple top! (adding this to my ooh!-fall-weather queue.)

  2. Can I be matchy matchy and make one with my second bump of Grouch?! This came out great. So glad you enjoyed the spin!

  3. Beautiful! Love watching the transformation of the fiber. What a perfect winter accessory. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

  4. Awesome!

    love the colors and the buttons are perf!

  5. how much would you charge for one? I WANT ONE!


  6. how gorgeous! The buttons and yarn harmonize together beautifully.

    I just wanted to invite you over to my blog - I am having a give away!
