After packing up all my hats and cowls for Appalachia Outreach last night, I had to decide on a new project so I started knitting the Oats Cowl (shown above from Tin Can Knits). The yarn was in my stash and I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is just the right amount of yarn for the shorter version of this cowl. I purchased the yarn a few years ago at the Vogue Live event in New York from a vendor displaying Irish yarns. My original intention was to make myself something to wear on Saint Patrick's Day but instead it ended up buried in my stash. I'm starting a new box for Appalachia and this will be the first project in the box.
I am trying to make my way through the Simple Collection. Lots of fun patterns that are very easy to knit.
Here is my completed Oats Cowl. What a great pattern. My yarn is heavier than the one used above but it is very warm and perfect for this time of year.
