'Doesn't time fly' they would then go on and on about how quickly I have grown, how could it be Christmas already? etc. I remember thinking that in my opinion, time didn't fly it took forever ,as all I longed for was our summer holiday and my annual trip to Devon .Didn't it seem to take forever for the summer holidays to come? Did it not feel that the school year sept to june took a life time? I remember desperately wanted to turn fifteen so I could have saturday job , I swear I was fourteen and a half forever. Forever was a word I used a lot and it meant forever.
Oh my, hasn't it changed. My eldest is in her final year at university, my beautiful grandson is a one year old . It seems that the days are so short I cant find enough hours in the day to do what I need to do. I often say I'll sleep when I am dead. I think I must concede my mum was right ,in fact she was right about most things, time does fly.
At the start of the year I vowed Christmas wouldn't catch me again. I complied a list of what I needed to achieve. I vowed that all my handmade gifts would be finished by November. I bet you have guessed that the list was a pointless exercise . If like me you are stuck I offer you this pattern in a bid to give at least a couple of people something more than a washcloth and a bar of l'occuitane soap, hehe.
I wrote this pattern way back in 2010 .A very simple and gratifying project using a conservative amount of your yarn . In no time at all you’ll have a stylish and useful accessory that will quickly become one of your most treasured possessions.

.It is so warm and cosy you substitute any weight yarn the pattern looks lovely whatever yarn you use .I have made this with kid silk haze and some swarkowski crystal threaded on to yarn and it is so beautiful. It looks really good in those super chunky yarn, using those yarns makes it an even quicker make
It is just a one row repeat .Chain whatever length you like, I believe we all like different sized cowls so I never specify an amount. Just make some chains and check the length around your neck, perhaps you'd like it to go round two or three times around your neck.
You are working in the round. If you prefer you can make this a scarf and then join afterwards, if you twist this 180* and then join you will have a made a Mobius cowl.
