What should I knit? Week # 2 of 16 of suggested projects:

The Swirling Cowl
by Signe Marie Richter

This cowl is knit with just over 100 yards of a super bulky weight yarn.  We used one skein of Mirasol's Yaya ($19.95), a gorgeous and soft Superwash Merino from Peru that comes in some great colors.  Knit on size 17 needles this cowl is a fast and easy project for even a beginner.

Can't find just the right color in Yaya?  Then you can try one of these:  The Third Piece's Funky Chunky ($30), Noro's Kureyon Air ($18), Berroco's Gusto ($14 x 2), Lana Grossa's Olympia ($16.95), Linie 373 Dahlia ($8 x 2) or Mirasol's Ushya ($18).

If you can't find a color or a print to please your "giftee" with all of those choices, then please accept our condolences!  Maybe that person just isn't "knitworthy" -give them cash instead!
