What You Wish came from my desire to figure out a scarf pattern that didn’t bore me. I LOVE scarves. I love wearing them. However, they aren’t my favorite thing to knit. I wanted to create something that wouldn’t bore me or take me a million years to knit. It had to keep my interest. Lately, cables have been the attention grabbers. I took that cable element and combined it with my love of garter and stripes and tada! Soon, I realized that I could do cowl versions as well. What You Wish became my obsession and I knit three versions in the span of two weeks (actually less). What You Wish was exactly what I wished for!
