Campillo Cowls

So one of the things I love doing the most to reduce anxiety is knitting.  Four or so years ago I learned to knit from my mother-in-law in Michigan during vacation in the summer.  She bought me my first set of knitting needles and taught me how to make my first knitting stitch.  I can't thank her enough from that.

After I took a hiatus from knitting for three years, I picked it back up last year.  One of the things I fell in love with over the fall and winter were these infinity scarves, or "cowls."  It's extremely easy.  I found a pattern online and I changed it a little to my liking.  The pattern I saw called for a double stitch and a certain type of yarn.  One day at Hobby Lobby, I found Lion's Brand "Homespun" yarn, and I thought that would be perfect for just a single knitting stitch type of cowl.  So, I then took the yarn and I casted on 25 stitches and then knit until the scarf was 55 inches long.  After that, I connected the yarn together.  It created a complete circle, aka "an infinity scarf."

So I made many of these, but wanted to make sure my friends got them when I was with them the past weekend.  So here is a look at the cowls and my closest girlfriends from college modeling my cowls.  I hope you like!  I know they did :)
Happy Knitting!
