Whatever animal I evoke, it is definitely something with a very, very long neck. My neck is always cold, so I love cowls. They use very little yarn, are super easy, and don't bunch up under your coat the way scarves and moebii (?) do.
I had some Twinkle Superbulky left over from an afghan, and loved the color. So, I whipped up in a couple of hours, the chunkiest cowl ever. It is named Max, in honor of my best canine buddy, Max, the Shi-tzu:
Max, the Shi-tzu.
The pattern for Max, is as follows:
There is also a pdf link above.
2 skeins Twinkle Chunky
size 17 needle
Cast on 68 stitches with size 17 needle. Join, being careful not to twist.
K2, P2 around every row until 12 " from cast on. Bind off very loosely. Weave in ends.
Thats it. It took only a couple of hours. Hope that you enjoy it!
