About Cherish Cowl
The yarn for this project was gifted to me by a friend from first grade, whom’s mother pass last year. I thought I would make something for my friend, but her favorite color is purple, not pink. 😀
Please inform Mrs. Yamamoto (Kat’s mom) – if she doesn’t know already – that her yarn stash has been discovered and is being converted into something practical for Hooker Leo, who is ever grateful to have extra yarn with with to research and develop, and keep warm.
I had seen a stitch previously on YouTube that I intrigued me. It is called Serpentine Stitch. However, I did not visualize an item – except an afghan – that would satisfactorily incorporate the stitch pattern. This led to a little research and development…and I came up with this petal-like, scale-like, biased texture by alternating a one-stitch shift/yarn-color change every other row: Shifting Serpentine Stitch.
After seeing the difference in size between wear-by-my-mother and wear-by-myself, I would have to size down the item for pattern writing. So Cherish cowl will certainly be cherished by me, a WIP (work, in progress), as I develop a poncho type item that will keep me warm in my orange garage-apartment.

I love the fact that there are no laundry instructions on the yarn label. To me, it’s a nod to the old days when people just knew how to wash clothes! 😀
