Mix Tape Cowl

Yesterday I managed to cast on five new projects! I didn’t get very far on any of them, but they’re ready to go when I want them. The one thing I realized is that they’re all a little more involved than I expected — not all that difficult, but none of them are easy mindless knitting. I’ll definitely need to add another project to my list for that purpose. Today I worked on my Mix Tape Cowl by Carissa Browning. It’s mosaic knitting, which looks so much more complicated than it really is, and this pattern is super easy to customize, with different stitch patterns you can choose from. I’ve got my first stripe done.

I definitely have to pay close attention to this one, because one mistake can throw off the whole pattern! It’s really fun, though, and I can tell it’s going to be addictive with those short, differently colored stripes! Did you cast on anything fun so far this year?

Happy Monday, friends.

  1. That looks like a lot of fun! I haven’t cast on anything new this year yet, but I’m considering a new shawl or scarf or cowl. On the other hand, I have a couple of projects I really want to get finished soon too, so maybe I should dedicate more time just to them? Hard to say…

  2. I love those yarn colours. I enjoy mosaic knitting, it seems quicker and yet your project grows slower. The only thing I cast on this year was Dolores’ tail which is my first double knitting project and another arm 😂 I’m on a mission to finish her before I start anything new.

  3. Alas, no new cast-ons for me yet. I am shackled with completing some UFO’s most of which aren’t very glamorous or exciting. But I plan to live vicariously through yours.
