Day 167: The Yoko Ono Cowl

by thecraftaholic


“I want to contribute to harmony and peace of mind, for less conflict. Wherever the possibility is, I’m ready. This is my life’s goal.”

I’m leaving this post a bit short, because in all honesty, I’m not really feeling well. I need to get out into nature somehow, and just remind myself of all the wonderful blessings I have in my life.

If we all were to live by this motto, and truly apply it to our lives, we would perhaps, live a life of more peace, don’t you think?

Today I finished another cowl. This one is called the Yoko Ono Cowl, and I’ll tell you why. I was walking around Manhattan on the upper west side, and saw this hipster Japanese  tourist with a very cool cowl. Actually, she inspired me to make two different kinds of cowls: this one, and the one I’m working on now.

I call it the Yoko Ono Cowl, because I pictured a young Yoko Ono walking around the streets of manhattan, arm in arm with John Lennon, wearing a cowl like this one.

I used two strands held together of:

LB Collection® Pure Wool Yarn

I used about 2 hanks total.

It’s so simple to make, but here’s a little pattern:

The Yoko Ono Cowl

cast on 42 stitches

Do a rib knit stitch (K2, P2) until piece measures about 25 inches around, and sew it up closed.

Like it?
