Ribbed Cowl 'aka' Coffee Cozy Cowl....

 I have finished another little project...
this one was a quick one to work up.
 I adapted a pattern for a coffee cozy (see below)
to make this cowl.
 I really enjoyed working the ribbing made of  fpdc & bpdc stitch
 and think I may make another couple of these cowls.
I used 2.85 balls of Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Silk (discontinued)
& a 4.5mm hook
I followed the pattern except for the following changes
I started with a chain of 110 and just worked until it was a width I was happy with.
It measures - folded flat 32cm across, 66cm around, 16.5cm high

below is a coffee cozy I made using the same pattern
You can find the free pattern for this cozy
on Ravelry Here
Designed by Theresa Grant

hope you are having a lovely day,
