Finished Projects: Pine Boughs Cowl

Image This may be one of the prettiest things I’ve ever knit. When I tell people that I knit it myself, the response is “You made that!?” It’s a fun project, easy to get into and remember, and stunning as a finished item. It just looks so professional! Image Pattern: Pine Boughs Cowl. The original pattern is double the length, but I ended at the halfway mark. I was worried that a doubled cowl would swamp me and be too heavy to wear comfortably. Decision made, I grafted the ends together to form a mobius loop. It was my first time grafting, and it was actually pretty easy! (The seam might be a little bit visible, but only if you look close!)

Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Tweed in Marine Heather and Down Heather. I liked this yarn. The tweed adds some nice visual interest and texture. I think I used about 4 balls of each color, with more of the blue than silver. ImageDSC_4606
