GAP-tastic Cowl Scarf Pattern

Hello again friends. I love my latest knitting project. I found the pattern for free on Ravelry.com (free ones are my favorite!) Thanks to Jen Geigley for writing and sharing this pattern. You can find it here!

Jen mentions that she actually saw this scarf at The Gap and went in the dressing room to count the stitches so she could create this herself! I think that is awesome. Anywho, it took me about three nights to make this, most of it done while on my exercise bike! Ahhh, multitasking!


This is a quick knit that when even quicker for me since mine is only about 2/3 as thick as the pattern, but I only had about 240 yards and the pattern called for about 300. That's the nice thing about this pattern though is that is is pretty fool-proof and you can make it whatever thickness you want. I am still pleased with the result.

I was thinking this would be a great project for the car/traveling. It's a simple moss stitch knit in the round, and with no color changes it would be easy to transport.


Mom...you will have to let me know if you like this, if so it is all yours! (I can say that because I liked the pattern so much that I already bought yarn to make another one!) I bought 300 yards for the next one, so I am excited to see the results, and of course I will share it with you when I am finished.


Also special thanks to my husband Phil who is making his photography debut. He helped me get these shots today!

    1. Thank you Ann! I think knitting helps take my mind off the fact that I am exercising... :)

  2. I'd love it. I remember when you first learned to crochet and knit, some beginning instructions from Grandma Delchambre and Sharon V. -then you taught yourself the rest. And you have have been creating beautiful and useful items ever since with homemade love knit into each gift you made. Can't wait to see and/or wear future knitting projects. But I will share.
    - Love Mom
