    I love cowls. Long or cohort. They are so easy to make in so many pretty patterns and they are also easy to wear and use.

  • missmoxie

    I like something quirky and warm. And bright colors are a must!

  • Lucy

    oooo….I am completely smitten with the double knit scarf, but the others are darned purty, too!

  • Melissa

    My scarf style is warm, and nice-feeling against my face. That’s what happens when you live in snow-and-wind country!

  • Maureen

    I love infinity scarves and long scarves that I can wrap around my neck a couple of times…warm and cozy is a must living in New England!

  • Wendy TC

    I love soft lightweight longer scarves that I can use as an accessory piece, or for warmth when wrapped a couple of times around my neck. But it has to be soft, like cashmere or a nice baby alpaca.

  • Kelly H.

    I like soft, light weight scarves – long enough to wrap as few or many times as I want, not very narrow nor very wide. Love the cowl on the cover, too!

  • Marissa

    I love soft, drapey scarves

  • Deb

    I think the 3D Entrelac Scarf is amazing looking! I would love to give that one a try! And I’m glad there are a lot of Infinity scarves, as that is my current scarf style of choice, either light and lacy or warm and bulky

  • drae

    I like lots of it scarfs – as in you can scrunch and wrap it a number of times to keep the cold out. alcbrooks on Ravelry

  • Mgcrafts

    I like long tapered scarves – more like narrow shawls I guess. But becoming more fond of cowls as they cannot come unwrapped and fall around my hands on the piano keyboard as I play with the orchestra at my church.

  • Anne Marie

    Queenie looks like an interesting knit, and I really like the Cottage Scarf pattern.

  • Lynn

    I really like infinity scarves. I like to be warm and wrapping them around my neck a couple of times does the job.

  • Julie

    I just got this book out from my local library and loved everything so much that I decided I want to buy the book. Maybe I’ll get lucky and win it!

  • Kristen Sylvia Wilkinson

    I am enjoying infinity scarfs right now, but anything soft and warm at this time of the year!

  • Kate

    Looking through the patterns on Ravelry, I think most of them are my style! My favorite is probably the Sylvie Scarf. It’s beautiful and like nothing I have. I also love the gorgeous lace shawls. I have some similar styles in my queue.

  • DZ

    The yarn determines the scarf style – have made bulky ones and lace weight one. Always looking for more pattern options!

  • ADroz

    I like infinity scarves, mostly because I don’t have to worry so much about how to style them, and they can’t come loose and fall off! But I’m very intrigued by the lace stole pictured.

  • James

    Really cute patterns but personally, I’m all about just long garter stitch scarves. lol

  • Sharon M2

    Even though I like shawls and cowls, I find I usually resort to the traditional long, skinny scarf that I can wrap around my neck several times and pull up tight around my collar.

  • Jio

    Cowls are fun, quick experimental projects.
    But I have a big Lady Eleanor from the first book.

  • Sheila

    Lately I’ve been on a cowl kick – they’re so easy to wear!

  • jules mcnubbin

    i love the lacy shawl look… and i have never owned one or made one! would love to get around to it :)

  • Jonty

    I love lace work, but lately I’m leaning towards cable scarf patterns.

  • Sandy Foster

    I love the lacy shawl look!

  • missmoxie

    I love a warm, warm scarf and I especially like an infinity scarf. There’s no way I’m going to lose that! (fingers crossed)

  • suburbancorrespondnt

    Simple cowls and scarves for me!

  • Kate

    None of these scarves look like mindless knitting, which was what scarves were when I was young. Modern knitting offers such interesting challenges.

  • Susan Jacobowitz Krisch

    loving infinity cowls lately!!!

  • Marie Mc

    I love to make. gift and wear cowls! But I’m always looking for something new and interesting.

  • Becca

    I love the European triangular scarves. Made 3 so far!

  • Renee W

    I’ve never made anything but traditional scarves but I would love to try a cowl. They look so pretty and I think they would be fun to make

  • Randy

    I cannot stand to button the top button of any coat or jacket. Therefore, I need many types of scarves for different occasions. I’m always searching for a new look!

  • Monday knitter

    I like a mid weight hand knit scarf in soft yarn. I like it to be able to be pulled over my head if need be for the weather. I also hand dye silk scarves, which are only for decorative purposes!!!

  • Sue Richards Drover

    I love scarves and cowls – not only to wear, but to knit because they’re a manageable size to try out new color ideas, new stitches, new techniques, without the investment of a really big project. And the results are really fun to wear and give as gifts!

  • Judy Olson

    Neo-classic cowls for me!

  • Ruth

    Anything with cables works for me!! Would love this book!

    I love cowls and scarves~~ Perfect Christmas presents!!

    I’m crazy about cowls this year

  • Lisa I

    I like unusual scarves! Not sure how to leave a way to contact me without public knowledge but I do follow you on facebook!

  • Julie Chandler

    I love knitting scarves because I can knit them to a longer length than I can buy them and I have lots of tall people in my life. I’d love to try cowls, too.

  • MichMarra

  • Paulette Aldrich

    I love the look of the cowl! I would like to try that one.

    The bolder, brighter and funkier, the BETTER!!!
