I just finished a new cowl. It is called the Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset Cowl. It is designed by Laura Concert. I used Yarn Rehab/Meadowcroft Dyeworks
Moon Lorn in m-232 - Dawson
Superwash Merino Fingering Weight
I made a couple changes from the pattern. I guess when you make a mistake, you call it a design element now. LOL For some reason I must have been one off on the center row of the first lace rows. I didn't notice it until the second lace rows. I decided to leave it that way and try to duplicate it on the last lace rows. Hence, the design element. I also eliminated the last repeat between the ribbing and the last lace stitches. I wanted the top and the bottom to match. I blocked the cowl, but not too much. I like the purl stitches between the lace stitches to pop up somewhat. The yarn was OK, but the ball fell apart because of my poor yarn winder tool. I misplaced the good winder. I think I spent as much time untangling the yarn as knitting with the yarn.
What have you made lately? I hope you had a great weekend. Thank you for viewing!
