Waffle Cowl and Christmas Presents

I just finished this waffle cowl using some yarn a friend gave me and some thrift store yarn. Originally I had the darker colour on it's own, but the cowl was way too small. I pulled it out and made this waffle cowl. Much better. I like the delicate little picot edging too .

The slight waffle pattern gives it some texture and I think adds some warmth. It's just sc flo worked in the round.

I've been making hats for some of the guys on my list for Christmas. Isn't this pattern great? It' the Best Guy Hat Ever and I think it's just a great all around hat. Simple, stretchy and nice. Easy to work in any yarn, feels great on. I made this one and handed it to my boyfriend to try on. He was very sad when I told him it wasn't for him.
I might make one for me once I'm done with the boys on my Christmas list.

This weekend I'll be at the Creativ Festival downtown. I've never been, so I'm looking forward to it. I'll be working, but that's ok. I'm not to spend any money there. Only look. Nothing at all.
(I'll do my best...)


  1. ooh, both turned out great! Beware the boyfriend hat curse though ;) Or maybe it only applies to sweaters?

  2. Thanks! I think we'll be ok- he had to nearly beg to get his hat. If he isn't wearing it it's gonna be washed and given as a present still. Mwahahaha.
