In the book, page 71, yarn type is incorrectly referred to as medium weight #4 yarn. Bartlettyarns 3-ply is a bulky weight #5 woolen spun yarn. A bulky weight yarn at a gauge of 10-1/2 sts = 4 inches (10cm) in stitch pattern is required for a cowl with a finished size similar to sample.

What a long and Winding Road it has been!!!

My Winding Road Convertible Cowl and it’s companion Winding Road Mitts were designed in the Summer of 2014. They were selected to be published in a book tentatively titled 60-Minute Knits to be published by Stackpole Books in Spring 2016.

The book was put on a hold after the company was sold in December 2015. It was not put back into production until October 2016.

It seems a very long time ago for me in my design career. But finally, in July 2017, the book has been published with the title Knits in a Day.

As editor Candi Derr wrote, “Sometimes when you realize you need a new hat or mittens--It’s going to be freezing tomorrow and I’m going hiking! It’s my best friend’s birthday and I don’t have a gift!--you need it NOW! This is the book you can turn to again and again for just the right pattern, knowing that every project in it can be completed in a matter of minutes or hours.”

BTW: This cowl took me about 2 hours to knit.
