But finally, FINALLY, my boyfriend/Dexter cowl is done!
It's based on the Brioche Infinity Scarf pattern, found here.
So, without any further ado, I present my finished cowl!
This was a true stash-buster! I was originally planning to use a light tan and a beige that I had left over from a sock monkey I made for my mom, but as usual, I realized I was going to run out of those 2 colors long before it was done! I somehow always think my yarn's going to stretch further than it does.
I dug through my stash some more and found a gray that went with the overall color scheme (also from a sock monkey I made!). I added that in random rows, as I did with the tan.
Finally, I ran out of all three of those colors, and was forced to grab ANOTHER yarn from the stash, only I didn't really have anything that went with the color scheme...
So I added red! I don't think I can call this the boyfriend/Dexter cowl anymore...it's now the sock monkey scarf!
I prefer to wear it with the red at the back, but it is super warm and cozy, perfect for this crazy Chicago weather!
I love how versatile this is! It's a scarf/hat/hood/anything I need it to be, and it's great! It's a bit shorter than the other ones out there, but I was SO TIRED of working on this and just wanted/needed it to be done. I didn't quite use up all of the red, but almost, and I think I actually like it shorter like this. Any longer and it wouldn't keep out the cold so well.
Stash busted: 3.5 skeins of stashed yarn, yay!
