Knit one to give, give one to knit, or treat yourself!

I finally made it to the last clue. There are 586 stitches on the needle right now. It takes a bit to get through a row.

I was playing around on Raverly and came across some great patterns that use Rowan Cocoon. We currently have Cocoon on sale for 25% off. Take advantage and knit a great gift or make something for yourself.
Knit this accessory textured snood, available as a free pattern to download. Designed by Vicky Sedgwick using the luxurious yarn Cocoon (wool and mohair), this snood can be knitted in the pattern to your desired length and can be worn loose or wrapped round double.
Pattern: Textured Snood (free from Rowan)
Yarn: 2 balls of Rowan Cocoon

Pattern: Ambergate (free from Rowan)
Yarn: 4 balls of Cocoon

Churchmouse Yarns has a free pattern for a cowl knit with two strands of Cocoon.
Right on trend, these Last-Minute Cowls can be knit up before you can say, “I couldn’t possibly finish a gift in time.” Using US 17 (12mm) needles and some of our favorite super-chunky-weight and bulky-weight wools, the results are gorgeous. Not to mention incredibly warm. Knit one to give, give one to knit, or treat yourself! Our updated free pattern now includes mistake rib in addition to seed stitch and 2x2 rib. For the men in your life to wear (or make!)

We've made single-strand versions using our favorite super-chunky yarns, and double-stranded versions using bulky yarns, like Rowan Cocoon. These yarns are lofty, soft, easy to knit and give great stitch definition. They’re unbelievably snuggly, and the chunkiness of the yarn makes these simple stitch patterns really pop!
This cowl is knit with two different colours - one ball each.

I made the Seed Stitch version of the cowl. Super fast. Super easy. Looks great.
I need to get back to my knitting. The kettle is boiled for a cup of tea and the football game is on. My goal is a couple more rows before bed.
