…designed for the Stitch ‘n Bitch weekend in Copenhagen♥
we will have a big, big all-around-the-world cast-on party in the group (here is the KAL thread for this party in the group) and in Copenhagen…
Copenhagen calling was designed for the third (!!!) meeting-the-gang weekend that will take place in Copenhagen (I will be in Copenhagen from september 24th to september 26th for a knitting retreat with all my lovely Paris ladies (ladies! I can hardly wait to meet you again!). Same as for the Paris shawl (and the Amsterdam shawl…hahaha) the goal was to keep the knitting easy enough to be able to giggle and babble and have a glass of red wine (or two…)…and to keep a ‘theme’ for our weekends…
Copenhagen calling is a snugly cowl that is done in 2 colors using 3 different patterns (all three of them are easy – I swear!). Entirely knitted in the round, there are only 4 ends to weave in ;)
