The knit yoke top I designed and made has become such a staple of my summer wardrobe, that since I noticed I needed a light weight scarf or cowl to throw on when encountering chilly air conditioning, I knew I had to create another garment that combined knitting and sewing.
Messing around with Habu yarns yielded a unique and airy piece of knitting-perfect to join with a single layer of cotton fabric to form the body of the cowl.
Sewing the binding onto quilts is always so satisfying, I used the same technique to finish the edges of the cowl. The binding adds a pleasing bit of structure to an otherwise very drapey garment.
I find myself grabbing this almost daily-it is quite wearable even in the heat of a Kentucky summer!

I look forward to seeing other screen porch cowls-please be in touch if you have any questions or make one!
