First, thanks for your kind comments after my last post. I appreciate your encouraging and kind words! I feel a bit better, although things are still somewhat up and down, but it’s good that things are evening out a bit (I think).
This cowl took just a few hours, and although I didn’t have quite the required amount of yarn I still got 6″ of height. This cowl (free pattern here) would make a good gift because it’s pretty, plush, and fast. Note that the requirements on Ravelry are not the same as the pattern itself — it was updated to a larger hook size (I) and the foundation ch # changed, too. Anyway, here’s mine folded in half (circumference is about 57-58″:
I’d definitely make another one. This one used the leftover yarn from my Classic Cowl, Purl Soho Worsted Twist in 3030 Otter Brown. I really like this yarn, and wouldn’t mind getting it again when it’s on sale (that’s why I ventured to try this, it was discounted). I’d love to get some other colors, too.
Here’s a closeup:
The cowl is pretty simple, using rows of dc, hdc, & sc in a certain order, but it’s not boring to make since it’s so quick and the stitch does change every row.
Well, that’s all for today, thanks for stopping by, see you soon!
