Knitting Finished Object: A new favorite neck accessory

This is a beautiful (and free) design by the Espace Tricot team. I used a yarn that I bought at one of my firsts fiber festivals. The one where I also learnt to spin. Memorable!

The cowl is worked fast with a bulky yarn. It looks very nice and provides a good warmth. I would knit it again. Only caution is to bind off loosely so it goes over “big brains” with ease. My cowl “collar” is a bit tight. I have to take a deep breath and pull out the cowl with as much care as possible hoping not to loose an earring or my mask in the process. No worries, the operation is smooth and kid friendly (most of the time).

The facts…

Yarn: Two skeins of Plymouth Taria. Bulky weight blend of 40% Merino, 30% Llama and 30% Silk in colorway 2767 red. This yarn is discontinued.

Needles: US size 10 (6mm)

Modifications:

  1. Cable cast-on. Tutorial: here.
  2. Cast on less stitches (124 stitches rather than suggested 140).
  3. Joined in the round on row #2 as is easier for me to make sure stitches are not twisted when joining in the round.

  1. I’ve yet to find a foolproof way of removing mask mask without losing my earing, spend so much time trying to find it after its rolled down the pavement ( I only wear one) I think I’d be hopeless with a cowl. thanks for the comment x
