FO – State Street Cowl

One of my most favorite knits to date is my State Street Cowl (rav link). It was a super quick knit thanks to the bulky yarn and knitting with size 13 and 15 needles. It’s easy to wear and pair up with other knits and outfits. And it works as a shoulder wrap too if pulled down some. Totally recommend to those looking for a quick knit to gift or keep for yourself.

The pattern: State Street Cowl by Pam Allen

The instructions are very easy to follow, there’s absolutely nothing I didn’t like about knitting this cowl. I just adore the stitch pattern as well. I’ve already made another as a gift. :)

The yarn: Berroco Peruvia Quick, 9147 colorway, 2 skeins

The yarn, to me, was fated to become this cowl. It provided great stitch definition and after a washing it blocked beautifully. I did make sure to rotate the cowl as often as possible to avoid any crease forming. The odd thing about this yarn was that it was really dirty which I didn’t notice until I was washing it. I’m not sure if anyone else has experienced that as well but it’s something to keep in mind. Otherwise the yarn is great and super warm.
