Finally, a cowl. I was dying to make this and saw the pattern at a wonderful knitting store called Close Knit in Evanston. The shirt is one I made and blogged about HERE in Betsey Johnson Knit - Gertie's Portrait Blouse.
The pattern, in the round, calls for K3 P3 K3 P3 finish the row in the round, then P3, K3, P3, K3 finish in the round until about 8 - 10 inches. Originally the pattern called for 42 cast on stitches - but I wanted a bit longer for the super bulky thread so I cast on 60 stitches (cast ons must be in multiples of 6) - and I used a size 19 circular needle. And, it has stretched a bit. But, I still love it. It matches the yarn I made for J's scarf.
How are your Holiday preparations proceeding?
