Do You Need a Quick Holiday Gift?

Quick and Easy para cowl

In my job working with students with special needs, I rely on lots of talented teachers and paraprofessionals to see students, carry over skills in the classroom and make materials.  In other words, I need them way more than they need me.  So, every Christmas, I schmooze them with hand knitted gifts in thanks for their invaluable help.  This year, I designed two cowls to give them.  I was able to get 12 done in one month.  Knitted flat with super bulky yarn and sewn together, it only took one or two nights to finish each one.

The longer cowl below was made with a 2 by 2 rib with bulky yarn.  Both patterns are on the same pattern.
