WIP Wednesday 88
|Go see what other WIPs are featured...|
|Circumference is 54" and width is 6" after one skein.|
I have made so many of these cowls this winter. I changed the stitch pattern from seed stitch to a spiral step kind of stitch. Must look in stitch dictionary for actual name.... I am knitting 2P, 2K for two rounds, then I alternate so it becomes a stairstep. Must describe this better. I will edit here to give you exact procedure. I have used up one skein and just started using second skein. Project began as a request for a silvery grey cowl for DD #3.
Iced, by Carol Fuller. Using Brown Sheep's Nature Spun chunky in Baked Bean colorway.
I won this amazing batch of reddish brown wool from Windsor Button while on the Red Line Yarn Crawl. I just picked it up Monday and have been swatching to see what can become of these five skeins. I also won a vest pattern to go with the wool but it looks too bulky for my taste. I have coveted the Iced cardigan ever since I spotted it in Knitty but never could decide on a yarn. I am eager to cast this on and get it going before the warmer weather sets in.
My other WIPs have not been picked up at all this week. I have finished two other projects though, more on these Friday.
