I’m on a roll here with another FO (believe me this is not sustainable).
Lucy Cowl by Heidi Hennessy
I used an entire kit of Pepperberry Knits Fun Size Bundle in Urbanite
This was a fun little project – all stockinette in the round. The original pattern uses even stripes repeated twice but I did uneven stripes to change it up a bit.
In the beginning I used a random stripe generator but then I switched to just deciding on the fly. It kinda looks like something I’d get at the Gap. Strong colors with some shades of gray thrown in too.
I used the Magic Knot to join the colors so I didn’t have to weave in all those ends. Total lifesaver and the joins don’t look too bad. Here’s a view of the joins (I flipped the cowl so you could see the wrong side). I just made sure all the joins were in the latter half of one of the repeats so I could. If you do this type of cowl, do yourself a favor and use the Magic Knot.
I can’t stress this enough.
The cashmere is awesome against my neck and I think I might pick up another bundle at some point. I like the different colors and the small lengths (approx 40 yards each) made for fun decisions. If I had more yardage for each I probably would have gone with more of my shades. It was fun to be forced out of my comfort zone. And hey – it’s even one of my goals!
I’ll catch you on the purl side…
