Cheater, cheater

Poor Ondine. Just one row to go and she gets set aside for something newer and shinier. Well, not exactly shinier, but a bit stripyer. (is that a word??)
A ball of Ella Rae Seasons fell into my stash last week, and I took it along to our family bbq yesterday because it is destined to become a cowl and it’s easy knitting while talking. Ondine has a fancy picot edge that I have to pay close attention to, so she’ll get finished up at home.
Here’s the cowl, nearly done already:


I made up the pattern – cast on 168-ish (I only counted once, so it’s very likely off a stitch or two), knit in garter for a bit, then alternate 5 rows stockinette and 1 row purl until the yarn gets scarce, then garter for a bit more and bind off. Very precise. At my gauge, it should end up about 48″ in circumference, which will wrap twice around the neck of a person I have in mind just fine.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure.

  1. Lovely 🙂 I love how vague you can get with some projects, a nice change from having to count lace rows 20 times before you get the right number!
