A while back I purchased some yarn to make my sister a hat (I'll be posting about that sometime, hopefully), and I picked up a ball of Malabrigo Worsted to save on shipping. I had intended to make Helen a hat out of it, but she received so many nice hats as gifts that I didn't need to go to the trouble! Thus I had a lovely ball of yarn just begging to be made into something purdy.
I settled on this pattern. It knit up very quickly and I LOVE the stitch pattern. I'm thinking I'll make Helen a cowl out of the leftover yarn.
Here are the details in case you're interested in making it yourself:
Pattern: Cowardly Cowl
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Pink Frost
Needles: Size Eight 16-inch circular needles
The pattern suggested that you knit until the cowl measures 9 inches from the cast on edge. I only knitted until it measured 5 inches until I began the seed-stitch edging.
What have you been creating/dreaming of creating lately?
