When was the last time I knit the same pattern three times? Joji Locatelli’s Blurry Cowl won my heart the instant I saw it in Interpretations, Volume 7. I made immediate plans to knit three of these: two are gifts and the third one is for me. The pattern is varied enough that I still haven’t tired of knitting it!
Since I have little DK in my stash, I had to buy yarn especially for these cowls. I found two perfect colors at Miss Babs, and two complimentary colors at Spun Right Round. I’d been wanting an excuse to order some yarn from Spun Right Round and was so happy this gave me the opportunity. Their yarn is fabulous!
For this, my third Blurry Cowl, I used leftovers of the Miss Babs colorway from my first Blurry Cowl and a fresh skein of Spun Right round, in the Bitten colorway.
Joji’s pattern is so much fun to knit. It starts with a chevron pattern that’s not easily seen in the pattern photos. It’s subtle but good to keep a knitter engaged with the pattern. And the stripes are just lovely! I was so happy with how well these two colors compliment one another!

I really tried to knit these cowls loosely. Without thinking, I’m a very tight knitter so I have to concentrate in order to knit a bit looser. But I wanted the fabric of this cowl to flow and I think I accomplished that.
I’m so happy to have accomplished my goal of gift knitting with these cowls! If you need a gift, I can’t recommend this pattern enough!
