Wayyyy back in August, I started a Harry Potter Gryffindor inspired scarf.
I had intended it to be a long, fringed scarf.
However, in all honesty, I became bored knitting it.
So instead I made it into a cowl!
I believe I cast on 70 stitches and knit 20 rows of each color.
I used Stitch Studio by Nicole yarn and it was easy to work with and made a soft cowl.

One thing I wanted to avoid was the jump you get when joining a new color.
I found this tutorial by Knit Purl Hunter for jogless stripes and by golly it worked well!
Because I did not originally intend for this to be a cowl, I used this tutorial to join the ends (I used this when sewing a cowl).
Miss Mary and I packaged this up and sent it to our babysitter who is studying in Maine.
We think it will help keep her warm 🙂
Have a great week!
