That Mary - she's the queen of accessories! Not only does she have great ideas and inspirations, she cranks those things out with amazing speed! I came in last Friday and Julie was knitting away on something in luscious Captiva - she said it was "Mary's Cowl".

The pattern is super simple - size 8 circular needle (24" or longer) - 4 skeins Berroco Captiva in a color you absolutely love!. Loosely cast on 150 stitches. Arrange your stitches on the needle so that the cast on is at the bottom all the way around (not twisted). As you prepare to join for working in the round, twist the first three or four stitches on your needle so that the cast on is at the top and join. Work in garter stitch (remember that garter stitch in the round is knit one row, purl one row). Continue until you have about 9 yards of yarn left (gotta bind off, you know) and bind off loosely. Voila! It's gorgeous, Mary, and so are you!
