Knit it: Oregon Trail Cowl update

This cowl is seriously so much fun to make. Grab 250 yards of DK-weight yarn, five lovely buttons, and a wee bit of knitting-attention, and you’ve got a beautiful and very textured little cowl.

The Oregon Trail Cowl first came about in response to Tina’s newest-at-the-time yarn, Yaksi. It’s a very happy-making blend of wool, yak and silk, and takes colors in such a very delightful way.

The pattern is both fun to execute, and just complicated enough to exercise your knitterly brain, which is always a good thing – keeps you sharp! It’d be a great thing to make to jump-start your holiday knitting, because, as the days shorten and the air cools, we get closer and closer to that time of year when we bestow our knitterly goods upon those we love.
