In our 'Learn to Knit 1' classes, we teach the very basics of making a scarf, including how to cast on, how to do the knit stitch, and in the end make a beautiful scarf. Its a great skill to have, but once you level up to using circular needles and knitting in the round, there will be nothing stopping you from world domination!
We feature the Squishy Soft Cowl in our 'Learn to Knit 2" classes because it is the perfect project to learn the purl stitch and how to "knit in the round" which basically means using those cable needles that seem so intimidating.
Here are some examples of the same project, just done in different yarn. It's amazing how different they can look and feel.
If this looks like something you are ready to try, you can find the pattern here:

Hello! I love that you are adding a blog, thank you! I hope you remember me — I am the ‘Auntie who lives in Southeast Alaska’ and was visiting my sisters and their families for the month. I purchased about a dozen skeins of yarn and a couple of patterns to create the yummy snood and the kimono style cardigan. Even though I live so very far away, I love that I can touch base through your website. The ladies who run the yarn shop here in Ketchikan have a question for you: Where did your order your wonderful shop bags from? I showed mine to them and they want to also go plastic and paper-free at our shop as well. All the best to you!!!
