Black Cow

The Name

Black Cow by Steely Dan

A black name for a black cowl.

The Cowl

Dimensions: 22-inch diameter x 5-inch width

Cast on 80 stitches with a knit cast on. Worked seed stitch for the entire skein. Purl bind off.

I was shocked that it did not measure up, diameter-wise, to the first one I created. I will concede the Lion Brand Jiffy Thick & Quick was thicker and more stiff. The Lion Brand Hometown USA is much softer and pliable.

However, the shorter length is still double-wrap-able.
