I am going to have to go with the Slouchy Cowl. It's simple and can go with any outfit. Besides, I don't quite think I'm ready to learn how to cable knit just yet.

Great choice, GrumpyCat4Prez! We love cowls.

Perfect. Keep 'em coming!

Definitely the Raspberry Ruffles Cowl for me. I've already gotten the pattern and need to search the "stash" to see if there is anything suitable to knit it of. It may look silly on my short, fat neck, but who cares when you're warm????

Hey Everybody... Have fun knitting..

Actually I'm facing a problem... I've lost a knit or purl I'm not sure too. And i don't even know where have I made the mistake cause I'm still new in knitting. i have no idea who can help me with this problem... Can anyone help?

aw_yi You can check if you have lost a stitch by counting the stitches on your needles--I have gotten lots of help from watching some of the people on YouTube--you might want to check it out--there is a lady there who shows you that if you lost a stitch how to get it back--Good Luck


i definitely going to do this

i definitely going to do this


Hi Mandubar, SSK means slip slip knit. Slip 2 stitches from the left needle to the right one. Then knit them together. This is one way to do a decrease in knitting. Hope this helps! editors of FaveCrafts

Found the answer finally: ssk..Slip, slip, knit slipped stitches tog
