I finally finished my second Gaptastic cowl – this time for me to keep.  I used 3 skeins (of the lion brand wool-ease thick and quick) instead of 2 and it ended up about 14 inches wide – which still leaves it plenty oversized.  We are still lying low around here (hence the iphone pics) so I havn’t had a chance to truly test it out, but my suspicions are that it will keep me plenty warm on the windy NYC streets.

    I see fantastic cowls like yours and the temptation grows to break my promise to myself not to learn to knit yet…
