My super long orange scarf (which I love) kept thwacking children in the face at work when I would bend down. So I made this cowl using this pattern from Ravelry. I went up a needle size from what the pattern suggests and used Loops and Threads Charisma in a dark green.
I live in a very bourgie part of town and actively resist turning into an obnoxious, latte-toting, double wide stroller driving white woman. Making my cowl instead of buying it from the Gap across the stress is, like, KIND of retaining some sort of indie cred . . . right?
