Quick Knit Cowl

Looking for a quick - knit gift to make?  This cowl knit up quickly, using bulky wool and a size 9.5 mm circular needle. I used 2 skeins of a soft Peruvian Highland Wool called "Peruvia Quick".  The cowl can be worn long, or looped around the neck once, giving a bulkier warmer feel around the neck.  The pattern is an easy one, using "seed stitch" (knit 1, purl 1, next row alternate purl 1, knit 1)

I like to hand make most of my gifts, and found this year I'm running out of time, with all the babies born into our family this year I was preoccupied with knitting baby things.
