Chunky Ribbed Cowl - A Knitting Pattern

If this post seems totally random, it is.  I got my hand popped over at Ravelry because I didn't submit my pattern correctly.  They want it listed as being published somewhere or uploaded as a PDF so here it is, published somewhere.  :-)

If you're a knitter who follows my blog, enjoy.  If you're not a knitter, you should be. 

Seriously, it's a great "craft" to pick up.  Sitting in front of the TV?  Knit!  Sitting in the car line at school?  Knit!  Sitting in the Dr. office?  Knit!  See an awesome hat you like in a boutique, but don't feel like spending THAT much moolah?  Knit!  

If you've got a Michaels or AC Moore near you, they offer classes.  Also, most yarn stores in your area will probably also offer classes.  Know someone who knits?  Get them to teach you the two basic stitches and then teach your self the rest.  That's what I did.  Seriously, once you learn this skill, you'll never regret it.

Anyway, here's the scoop on my Chunky Ribbed Cowl.

Cast on 28 stitches and work in K2, P2 rib until yarn is almost gone, leaving enough of a tail to sew up the seam.
BO and sew seam.

That's it!
