This morning I finished off the striped cowl. This has been a fun one to knit – although a whole lot of ends to deal with but I knit them in as I went so just need to trim off the ends.
It happens to be the perfect thing to dress up just a touch (and keep my neck warm) my Henley shirt if I wear it on jeans days at the office.
I changed the pattern up a bit – ended up not liking the button the pattern uses to hold that last bottom loop in place so started pulling the loops through from the bottom up rather than top down by twisting the first one (info on changes are on my Rav project page). Simplified the closure too. Looking forward to wearing this one. And here’s a whole bunch of photos of bits of it since it was a good photo taking day and they all came out the correct/true colors.
Now I’m trying to decide if I want to add that interlocking loop detail on a sweater around the cuffs, up the fronts of a cardigan…… possibilities.
