….Just in time for our current lovely Springtime temperatures! Oh well blink and the weather changes here in England. I’ll take it away with me to wear during chilly evenings, or for wearing by the sea if the wind blows.
The yarn looks a different colour in every photo, it’s more red not raspberry.
The apple blossom should flower soon. It’s so pretty.
Details – as you might want to knit a holey cowl too?
I used Louisa Harding Orielle – Ruby (colour no. 12)
This is a gorgeous wool blend; with 97% baby alpaca and 3% metallic polyamide (can you see the little sparkles?) It’s as soft as a cloud and drapes beautifully.
I used 4mm needles and sewed the seam at the end. Can you spot it in the second pic? I’m not sure how I managed such a neat job of it, but I did enjoy the sewing. It would knit well on circular needles too if you prefer seamless makes.
I used 3 x 50g skeins but if you want a longer cowl or a narrower one, the amount would obviously differ.
Height: 41cm/16″ (I wear mine doubled over, I don’t have the neck of a giraffe!)
Cast on 72 stitches
1-5 rows: Knit
6th row: K1, *yo, k2tog and repeat to the penultimate stitch, k1
And repeat until it’s the right height for you.
Easy! Good pub or cafe knitting if you have a crafty meet up ahead.
Perfect for this time of year and a pretty colour.
I can indeed see the little sparkles. Had no idea that baby alpacas are so glittery :)
This would be a perfect car project, too.
That is really pretty, my friend. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
so pretty, I love it!
Just checking as I am not a very confident knitter. .. should rows 1 to 6 be repeated or just row 6 please?
Yes, all 6 rows should be repeated. Please ask if you have any more questions. Enjoy using the knitty sticks!
Thank you so much! I will try and post a picture if / when I complete it! 🙂
Definitely do! Or tag me on Social Media – I’m on all.
