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!
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.
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.
