The Lycka Cowl

You guys, I am SO HAPPY with how this one turned out.

I had no idea what the plan was until I was already making it, so you can see how it could have gone quite badly. But for once, my first attempt worked out and I now have a gorgeous cowl to enjoy!

Check it out:

I know, it’s really…neutral, and simple, for my tastes. But all I really had for spare yarn was this Bernat Super Value in this off-white (their colorway called “Natural”), and I figured that’s a nice winter color so why not?

It really works well with the texture. I didn’t want boring texture, but so many of the pretty stitch patterns I find are too open and lacy and wouldn’t keep you warm.

I think I found a good compromise. And since I’m so happy with how it turned out, and it was all sheer luck, I named it my “Lycka Cowl”, because according to Google Translate at least, lycka is Swedish for happiness…and I’m half-Swedish so I love the sound of the language.

I’m going to make this my first paid pattern, and I’m currently uploading it on Ravelry right now so I’ll come back and link that later on, or at least I’ll try. I really thought I was somewhat tech-savvy but apparently I’m not, at all.

(Edited…) Figured it out! Pattern can be found here on Ravelry. Check it out and give it a try for Christmas presents!
