Hello Dear Friends, how are you? As you can see things are looking a bit different here. You will have to bear with me while I get used to this new theme!
A bit of a delayed blog post today because I didn’t want to post until this was complete. And it is.
I followed the pattern and chained the required 211 at the start, but my cowl seems to have come out a bit shorter than I would have preferred. The one on the picture looks longer. Bit disappointing but I’m not going to frog it all now. I also had yarn left after completing the required 37 rows so I decided to continue until my yarn ran out, which makes it wider than the pattern too. I figure that it will be good for pulling up to keep my nose warm – especially when I am on the back of Mr P’s motorbike. In fact I think a cowl is most necessary for that in winter… just a bit draughty!
I can feel more of these coming on. A perfect handmade present. Perhaps a yarn shop trip is required?…. I’ll be sure to remember to take some photos this time 😉
Now I am going to go and have a sort through all the numerous scarves I have and send the one’s I don’t wear to the charity shop…. because its much nicer having things made by yourself 😀
