I'm totally in love with Purl Soho, just like every other crafter on earth, and they are part of the reason we opened Fabric Bliss. Yes, I'm a stalker.
I fell in LOVE with their Big Herringbone Cowl and needed it ASAP. OK, so it was posted in January, and here it is October, but I am VERY slow at accounting, and alas, that must come first. Dumb responsibilities.
I used Amy Butler Belle Organic Aran yarn in Slate, and size 15 needles to make it a HAIR smaller (I don't like to be EATEN by my cowls), and it is my new favorite item.
It is SUPER wearable, and I got TONS of compliments on it when I wore it out to the bar! Then, for the walk home, I just doubled it over for a nice warm trip:
The pattern (linked above) is SUPER easy, and its a great TV watcher pattern, since you just knit and knit and knit. I will be wearing this all winter, so please prepare to get sick of it.
