A “fettle” is the seam line left behind when metal or plastic is cast in a mold—the verb means to sand down this seam. The slipped stitches reminded me of this seam—though the cowl is seamless, and uses just one skein of a wonderful single-ply yarn. This pattern goes fast, plays well with color, and fits great around the neck.
