I saw this cowl on Ravelry and immediately had to cast on. Its the Toast wrap pattern Ravelry Link. I wanted a red and grey combination but had quite specific ideas about the grey so I visited my local wool shop: Yarndogs, and came away with a skein of Dream in Colour Smooshy in Cocoa Kiss, and a skein of Madeline Tosh sock in Scarlet.
Both yarns were really nice to knit with and gave a good definition of the pattern. The pattern itself was easy enough to motor through, but interesting enough to want to keep knitting.
I was really pleased with the result - my feline model on the other hand was less thrilled with it as a garment and liked it more as bedding.
