So here we go, the 2nd Ravelympics project completed!
Chickadee Cowl (see pattern pdf on her right sidebar) Ravelry link
STR Mediumweight in Watermelon Tourmaline (hey did you know the Tourmaline is Maine's State Mineral hehe..hey you could win a trivia game ya know!)
US 9 Circular-Magic Looped (heh..what else ;)
Started August 12-Finished August 20th while we were about to drop the college guy off that very morning. I was in a fit of nerves and didn't want to show him/them so I bound off this and started another project which you'll see another day.
Mods-Well since I didn't use chunky yarn, (doubled mediumweight STR, you could double sportweight if you wanted to also) I went down to a US 9 and thought I'd have to go to an 8, but nope, it looked fine. I also cast on 99 stitches as you need an odd number for the linen stitch pattern and I knew from seeing others I needed more stitches for the smaller yarn. After a few rows I tried it on and it was fine! I knit it to 6" as it was plenty for me, but you could knit more or less.
Hey..how did that yellowish color get there?? *snicker* I cannot escape it can I?
This really is a fast and mindless knit. I started it when I needed a break from the Koolhaas hat, probably a day or less for some ;)
Everyone should knit a cowl! It can hide a few things and is easier than a scarf.....however, ask me again in a few months!
Yarn courtesy again of my BMFA shopper !! I've loved this colorway for a long while, just never got it until now.
Remember I said you'd see Koolhaas again.....
It goes together.....well kinda! ;) (although my shirt matches my cowl pretty well!)
