Turns out the commercially available version is as flat and lifeless as my swatch. So I set about developing my own variation rather than just duplicate the commercially available one. And the result is the Chicken and Waffles Cowl.
So named because side one has the waffle look, and side two has the look of bird feet (at least to me). My version is worked up in the round (no seaming) using a bulky weight and a worsted weight yarn in contrasting colors. I used one skein of Patons Classic Wool Roving (and I used just about the whole skein) in Dark Grey as the main color, and less than one skein of Patons Classic Wool (worsted weight) in Lemongrass for the contrast color. The finished dimensions are about 15" high and 40" around, blocked lightly.
The Chicken and Waffles Cowl pattern is available for immediate pdf download for $3 US. I hope you give it a try, and let me know how you like it.
