Drawstring Cowl

Now I'm not much of one for cowls. I'm more of a scarf kinda girl.  But, I saw this pattern and had to give it a whirl.  The pattern was designed by Samantha Pestana over at Once Upon a Loom.  If you love loom knitting you should really check out her blog as she's got a lot of beautiful designs over there.

For this cowl I used some of my favorite yarn to work with - Loops and Thread Charisma in Toadstool color.  I know, kinda funny name huh?  This project took just over one skein of yarn to complete so now I have enough left over to make a child's woven top hat.  Yippee.

In the meantime, I need to go do some reading on blocking projects because I have a mobius shrug (another item I'm not much into - but I can't always knit what I want right?) that is in need of some blocking.
