Heart on a String
ERRATA January 2013: A fellow Raveler has pointed out that in the chart, on Row 16 (a WS row), the symbol in column 33 should be a purl stitch. Remember, though, because the stitch is worked on the wrong side of the piece, it’s worked as a knit.
The Heart on a String cowl is designed especially to showcase Dream in Color’s February 2012 Dream Club offering: their Classy Worsted weight dyed in shades of red and fuchsia — the perfect antidote to February’s sometimes-glum grey.
The cowl features neck-warming, cushy, rope and heart cables, garter stitch button bands, and buttons all the way up for an easily-customized fit.
Heart on a String is knit flat, at a fairly firm gauge that allows the finished cowl — even after blocking — stand up and offer maximum neck coverage against the lingering Winter cold.
Finished dimensions are: 25.5 in. (65 cm) wide by 9.25 in. (23.5 cm) high — unbuttoned, laid flat.
Note: The 5 buttons called for in the pattern are not included with the Club shipment.
Until April 1, 2012, Heart on a String will be available exclusively as part of the kit for the February 2012 installment of the Dream in Color Dream Club. In April, the pattern will be available for individual purchase and download here on Ravelry.
