New cowl in the making - Cowl de Printemps
Another cowl in the making... This one is for another friend's birthday at the end of May. I think there is going to be some serious blocking when I finish as the purl rows are all curled up!
The pattern is from Ravelry and I did struggle to understand the chart in the beginning but after Jeni of The Knitist! patiently explained a couple of the unfamiliar stitches to me, I was ready to go.
Yarn: Touch 4ply pure merino wool
Colourway: 205 (I think it is powder blue)
Dye lot: 39
Needle: Knit pro 40cm 4mm circular
I am really enjoying this project as I am learning new techniques though I must say what I have knitted so far looks nothing like the designer's pictures... : (
