This little Garter Stitch Cowl is a simple loop worked in the round in a sparkly nylon yarn. I used a yarn from my stash, and I encourage you to find something pretty in your stash that you've been wondering what to do with to make a cowl for yourself.
This project works up quickly, though it is a little strange at first to need to purl in order to make Garter Stitch (because this project is worked in the round). It's a great alternative to a scarf on cool mornings or evenings; just toss it in your bag when you don't need it and it will always be ready to go.
Gauge is not critical for this project and will vary depending on the yarn you use, but I got 5 stitches and 9 rounds per inch in Garter Stitch in the round.
Finished cowl is about 32 inches around and a little more than 4 inches wide. Your size may vary depending on your gauge and how much yarn you use.
Because I was almost out of yarn, I did my bind of as a knit 2 together bind off (which is just like a regular bind off, only you knit 2 together each time instead of knitting 1). This draws in the edge and gives the project a natural curve on that side. That's the end that I used as the top when modeling it for the picture.
