This one for me:
This one (and matching hat) will be a Christmas gift- made with the wool from Purl Soho.
This one was made for my fabulous friend Michelle (IG: ilikeorangetoo), which I gifted to her while in Nashville.
Originally the cream cowl was a gift for Angela (Cut to Pieces), but little did I know that she is allergic to wool, and it instantly made her itchy! So I kept it (big hardship) and knit her up a new one quickly during our Sew South weekend out of a super soft alpaca yarn that she had bought herself. Doesn't she look adorable in it?
All of the above cowls were made with the same simple pattern, bulky yarns held single and worsted yarns held double, doing a simple k3 p3, in a multiple of 6 stitches plus or minus one stitch to allow the pattern to spiral. For most of these I cast on about 79 stitches to wrap double around the neck comfortably, and they each took 2 skeins.
I also made another very cool cowl/sling type thing, finished also while at Sew South for my bestie Samantha (IG: samsews). It was a pattern (Panem cowl on Ravelry) based off this super cool knit worn by "Katniss" in the latest Hunger Games movie.
I love how this turned out, and it is totally the funky style that suits Sam, don't you think?? I have more yarn to make one for me, someday.
More finishes on the way!
