I received some dryer balls(?) a few years ago as a gift. I think they were supposed to remove lint and wrinkles from clothes while in the dryer. I never use a dryer so I had no use for them.

One day I unraveled them and was going to use the yarn for something. The other day I came across the magic ball I had made and today I decided to re-purpose the yarn into something I could donate during my next visit to my clinic, as there are many homeless in the area. My plan is to leave the cowl in a public place with a gift note.

Because the original dryer balls were a felted item, I presume some if not all of the yarn is wool. The teal certainly maintains some of the scratchiness associated with some wools.

The stitch I used is commonly known as Griddle Stitch and the cowl was made flat and seamed.
