The Mommywog Cowl

When my mom was finishing her Masters in speech pathology, she had to work with patients in the speech clinic at the university.  Quite often she would bring home tape recordings of her sessions and listen to them. Once she was listening to one of a child and she was showing him pictures.  He called a frog a “wog” and when she pointed to the bigger frog he said that was the “mommy wog”.  This has since become a nickname for my mom.  From time to time she returns the favor and calls me “babywog”.




The Mommywog cowl

Yarn:  Burly Spun in Blue Flannel

Needles:  Size 13 Circular

 Dimensions:  16″x 6 1/2 ”

Cast on 44 stitches.  Establish K1 P1 rib pattern.  Continue pattern until about 6 1/2 inches long.  Block, weave in ends and sew on buttons.  Because of the looseness of the fabric, you will not need to make buttonholes.  However, a little bit of felt on the wrong side of the fabric where you sew on the buttons will help them to stay put!

    I love how the red buttons pop against the blue.
