I’ve had this Cascade Magnum for a few months, from at least the Spring. I’ve been thinking of what I’d make from the day I bought it. I love the richness of the color! So, here I am, some 6 months later, making a cowl. This cowl is the beginnings of my Christmas knitting.

I learned a new cast on for a hat I wanted to make and decided to practice on this. It’s the twisted German cast on and it was pretty simple.  The Twisted German cast on it actually a stretchy cast on and I thought the cowl was a great item to practice on.

I’ll have to seam it.I don’t mind knitting flat anymore. The cowl is being knit on 35’s…Strange and uncomfortable, but doable. I was told it would take an hour to knit….not hardly, or maybe I’m just a slow knitter and enjoying this break I took to knit.
