Surely at some point I’ll run out of new projects to share, but I’m not there yet. My third new cast-on for the year is the Curiosity Cowl (I only found it on Rav). The main reason I had to make this is because of the nifty little drawstring which I’ll probably never use but looks super cute and reminds me of hoodies. The pattern calls for two colors of sport weight but I didn’t have that and we all know DK is basically the same thing so I’m using Bamboo Pop from deep stash.
It’s a little slow going at the moment since you basically knit each row twice, once in each color, but so far I’m finding it interestingly unusual rather than fiddly and/or annoying. Still, right now I find myself just wanting to work on my Scottish Highlands shawl! With five WIPs, it’s going to take forever to finish one, isn’t it?
Happy Wednesday, friends.
This is a very pretty stitch pattern and I love the idea of a drawstring to block any draughts.
This is so pretty! And it looks squishy and warm! I love being able to find the perfect yarn for a project in the deep stash. I guess that means I need to shop my stash more, right?
That is such a cute pattern. And I love the yarn!
Very cute cowl! I love the drawstring too 🙂 And you found some lovely yarn for it, too!
