Wurm Cowl

Gift for a friend. I bought the yarn ( Knit Picks Capra) a while ago with this person in mind. She loves yellow and she loves soft.  I've been looking for a pattern but nothing really inspired me until I saw a cowl made from the Wurm pattern. Visible on Ravelry here. The colorway of Frank Ochre is close to mine and I thought, "Wow, that looks warm and so very Yellow. D would love that!" Caston! Four days and 16 hours later (slow poke knitter that I am) it's done and just as warm and lovely as I thought it would be. Now to gift it and take a picture with the recipient!

Yarn: Nearly 3 skeins of Knit Picks Capra in Honey
Needles: US 7, bamboo circulars

Caston: 200 st -  I didn't even think of doing something fancy, just a longtail here.
Castoff: I Put a littile more thought into this and did a stretchy lace castoff.

I knit 8 repeats of the pattern suggested by CatReading (5 Purl, 4 knit rounds beginning and ending with 3 round of garter.)

Finished dimensions:
L: 25"
W: ~5"
