Some late winter knitting

So its the end of March and I finally took some pics of my last knitting project that I finished a few weeks back.  I knitted this cowl that I received as part of a Chatterbox to give my review on their kits (pattern & yarn).  I had a hard time deciding which kit to try, but ended up deciding on this moss stitch cowl because I knew it would be great for keeping my neck and face warm on cooler winter walks.  Plus I loved the look of the stitch!

Finished Cowl

The kit I got came with some of their Cloudborn Highland Roving (100% wool) in Dolphin Blue.  The yarn was soft and the cowl I made is so warm!  The yarn knit up beautifully.

The pattern was simple to follow and very quick to knit.  I did have to make a minor change, though.  The pattern calls for a size US 17, 16″ circular.  I had a hard time finding this for under $20 and I didn’t really want to spend that, so I went with a size 15 that I was able to get for about $8.  I cast on an extra 8 stitches (50 total), and did an extra 4 rows to make it reach the right size.

Cowl on me

As part of trying out the Craftsy Cloudborn kit, they also gave me a special link to pass onto others for some great savings on their yarn & kits.

Otherwise I actually haven’t done a whole lot of knitting all winter.  Normally I end up doing a lot but besides this I did learn how to do Tunisian crochet and I made up a bunch of wash cloths.  These were great to do while we would watch something on tv or just to pass time on a cold winter day.

 


 

The kit & yarn were provided to me by Craftsy through a Chatterbox House Party for my review.  The opinions expressed are 100% my own.
