FO Friday 3


This is a cheating FO Friday because I've never posted this cowl as a WIP.

I started this honey cowl on Nov 19 and finished it on Dec 13. It's been sitting around for 2 weeks waiting for me to bind off and block! I bind off yesterday and these pictures are taken before blocking.

Here it is, with 2 skeins of madelinetosh vintage in the tart colorway.


This cowl is a surprise gift for a good friend. I love this color and the pattern. It is not the funnest pattern to do, the vintage is pretty rigid so it's not the easiest yarn to knit with for this pattern. I used this yarn for the purl ridge scarf and it worked really well so I think it's just the yarn and pattern combo that is not liking each other.


But the end result looks pretty and I hope she will like it.


Please check out Tami Ami's blog for more FO's.

  4. Just finished the small version of that cowl. Once I got in the rhythm it was okay, but it was fiddly. Yours is lovely.

  5. The amazing texture of that cowl is worth the yarn/pattern disagreement, I think, it's lovely. Beautiful colour, too, so I think this is an all-around amazing gift that will be well-loved.
