When I first created the stitch tutorial for the Alpine Stitch, I knew that I had to incorporate this stitch into a new design!!! This stitch makes a pretty tight, interwoven piece that doesn’t have any holes and makes for a great stitch to use for winter pieces. So, what better thing to make with it than an Alpine Stitch cowl!?

This piece will be sure to keep you warm this winter! Switch out the yarn and use a wool blend for extra warmth. I just used an acrylic yarn which works perfectly too.

It also makes for a great piece to work on while watching tv or if you just need more of a mindless piece to work on.

What Yarn I Used –

I used one of my favorite acrylic yarns, Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in the color Birchwood Cottage. The colors blend so well and I love how they look when they are worked up in this Alpine Stitch…..Absolutely perfect!

The yarn is also very reasonable, $4.99 per skein. I used less than 1 skein, so to make a cowl for less than $5 bucks is great!!! Plus, Hobby Lobby offers a 40% off coupon that you could use to even save more. I love a bargain and I especially love it when it’s on yarn!
