One of the hottest fall/winter trends predicted this year is big, bulky, super thick yarn – and cowls and scarves of course! Well, Lion Brand has put together a super fun idea that speaks to both of those – #scarfie!
Lion Brand sent me two skeins of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick – and the #scarfie challenge! Use the yarn, make a scarf or cowl, and take a selfie in it! The Stormy Weather Cowl is the result – and I love it! It’s big, bold and works up crazy crazy fast with the Thick & Quick yarn. So even when stormy weather takes you by surprise, you can whip up one of these fast as lightning!

I hope you like the Stormy Weather Cowl! It was too fun to make! I don’t usually post selfies here on Moogly – my kids make much cuter models – but the #scarfie challenge was too fun to resist! If you make a Stormy Weather Cowl, be sure to use the hashtag #scarfie so I can take a peek!
