A new WIP

Tuck by Laura Aylor

I’ve been going on and on about how I need a cowl.  Not just any cowl.  The perfect cowl.

Then, earlier this week, Laura Aylor’s Tuck popped in my pattern recommendations.  It’s the perfect cowl for me.

  • Uses sport or DK weight yarn but it’s easily modified for other gauges (I’m using fingering weight).
  • Garter stitch makes it easy to pick up and put down.
  • It’s tied so it’s easy to get on without messing my hair but nice and snug once I get it on.
  • It’s two colors but isn’t done with intarsia.

I cast on late last night and got through a bit of the first color.  I had to restart because I didn’t read the directions and was slipping incorrectly.  That was all on me – the pattern clearly states what to do.  The knitter?  Doesn’t read what’s clearly stated.  sigh

I’m using two colors of Jojoland Melody that I originally bought for an Aranami shawl.

Two shades of Jojoland Melody for a Tuck cowlThe yarn should be a great match for a cowl.  I tried using Melody for a pair of socks and it fuzzed up just while ripping it.  A cowl should be a better fit for this soft wool yarn.

I think Tuck will go quickly – and that’s a good thing.  I need to have that FO feeling soon – it’s September people and my last FO was in June – and I need a cowl.  It’s getting chilly in the mornings and evenings now.

I’ll catch you on the purl side.
