Name This Cowl Contest | Rope Knits
As a cowl
Just put the finishing touches on this convertible cowl and it needs a name
Submit your idea for a name, along with your reasons for it, in the comment section below. The person who submits the best name gets a copy of the pattern along with a copy of whichever one of my other indy patterns you’d like. 
The contest will end at midnight (central time, USA) on Wednesday, February 16 and I’ll announce a winner on Thursday, February 17.  (Just so you know, I’m leaning strongly toward place names for my patterns recently but I’m open to almost anything.)
ETA You’re welcome to submit more than one entry!
Here are a few more details that might help inspire some names: 
  • It’s knit in a great big rectangle that buttons up so that you can wear it either as a scarf or buttoned up and looped into a cowl. 
  • It’s knit in simple lace stitch that gives the bulky yarn a lot of drape. 
  • I used three balls of Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky (85% wool, 15% alpaca). (You could substitute any number of yarns but I’d suggest something soft since it’s going around your neck.) 
  • Big yarn. Big needles. It knits up quickly.

    "Wrap it up" or "wrapped up" or "wrapt?"

    Or "roadster" – since it's a convertible…

    It's beautiful I would go with Inside Passage. That stitch in the photos shown remind me of evergreen covered mountains along the inside passage of Alaska.

    It looks so cuddly and squishy! I love all your patterns.

    My name ideas are all based on the fact that you don't know it's a scarf/cowl combo just by looking at it…it's a mystery. 🙂

    Blueberry garden. The stitch pattern + the color of your sample reminds me of a basket full of blueberries.

    For some reason, the only thing that has been coming to my mind is "You Spin Me (Right 'Round)" or, for short, "Right 'Round."

    It's lovely!
    Since you mentioned places, the first one that sprang to my mind was Alaska…so how about 'Alaskan beauty'?
    I loved all your patterns… River Tweed, Bite Me and Kimono styled sweater are gorgeous!

    The first name that came to mind was "Fairytale clouds cowl" because the stitch pattern looks like the clouds you see in most fairy books, the colour also reminds me of that too. I think it has a nice ring to it…

    OK – enough! It is wonderful whatever you name it.

    "Hugbees Cowl"

    "Hugbees" was a running joke on an obscure cartoon I love. It was just something they said because it made them happy, all warm and cuddly all over. This cowl makes me happy, so…

    You can reach me on my blog, or as Lynnette on Ravelry.

  16. KJo says:

    Since it's convertible I'd name it, Schizophrenic.
    Because it has a dual personality. 😉

    When I saw the first picture, I thought it was very chic – then the back and scarf aspects are a bit funky. So…

    Call it "Tioga". The whole thing reminds me of crisp mornings spent in Tioga State Forest in Pennsylvania. The stitch pattern reminds me of the trees. The shape is reminiscent of the many trails and the color alone is enough to evoke the color of the sky in the mornings, as well as your breath if you've slept out under the stars.
