Helpful Hints

When adding Color B:
Hold color B behind the work, leaving a 4-5'' tail. Insert knitting needle into next stitch to knit wrap; wrap Color B around needle; bring color B forward. Continue knitting, being careful not to pull on Color B too hard.

When knitting stripes:
You don't have to cut the yarn every time you switch colors! Instead, pick up the new color and twist once with the old color before knitting the next round. Be sure to leave enough slack in the yarn so it's not too tight.

I keep trying to knit but I don't think I will ever get the hang of it, especially with my arthritic hands.

I'd probably name it "Strawberry Dreams Cowl" or something like that. But I love how quick and easy this pattern looks. I could probably knit up a few of these in different colors to donate to our local shelters.

Not sure what I would rename this cowl but, it does look quite easy to knit up. Strawberry Mousse maybe?

Easy Stripes Cowl

Maybe it is just me but I like the Shades Of Lipstick that it is already called. If there was white it could be Candy Cane.

Strawberry Wine

How about "hot lips"? But it really doesn't need a new name.
