Burton Bear Cowl

They are finally finished!! The cowls knit up so fast but then you get the fun task of "finishing" them. I hate weaving in ends. I'm ashamed to admit this but I have a pair of striped socks that have at least 10 tails inside them that I pretend don't exist. :x I made a cowl for both myself and my daughter...and with my leftover yarn I made her a wristlet that she loves. I must point out the crochet work along the front of the cowl and the ears. ;) I'm learning a bit. It goes so fast, I can see why people crochet. On this cowl, I used a bind off method that my friend Jeremy taught me. The pattern calls for casting off and then stitching together but I cast off by using a three-needle bind off.
