A Cowl and a Cunning Hat

 Not a lot of finished knitting lately.  I did knit two projects that I really liked the way they came out.

The pattern for the cowl is called Flurries.  An easy pattern with Stockinette and Brioche stitch.  I only changed the pattern a little bit. I added a garter stitch border on the button side.  Who knew I would even need a cowl?     I did wear it on a trip to  the mountains.  And then it was more of a fashion accessory.  What makes it great is the yarn I used, Mericash,  a merino and cashmere blend  (20% Cashmere).  Very soft!

Do you recognize the hat? This is what I had planned with the yarn you saw peeking out of the tote bag in the last post.
