this cuddly cowl was made for a friend whose house tends to be a tad chilly in the winter months. stylish, not too snug, and super soft thanks to the berroco ultra alpaca yarn it is a quick, comforting knit. just one skein was all it took to whip up a toasty turtleneck. the pattern came courtesy of a free download found on ravlery (if you knit and/or crochet, this site is an incredible resource and a treasure trove of tempting patterns...many of them available for free). named "meine kalte liebe" (my cold love) by its creator rilana riley-munson, it was inspired by her love of the twilight series.
the pattern is offered as a free download from ravelry, but if you aren't a member yet don't despair. looks like you can also get a copy from her website, pdx princess. scroll down in the right hand column to find a list of the patterns available. the chickadee version deviates from the printed page only slightly...and not at all on purpose. it was just fun and absorbing and before you could say "scheißevogel" i'd worked an extra repeat.
