Notes

I’m making this on the advice of Tasiaknits - and using some yarn a work colleague kindly gifted to me. Here’s hoping it’s all that!

Very clear pattern that knits up fairly quickly.

Some thoughts: I like the look of seed stitch but it’s tedious. It’s also hard to work it on size 11 needles. I ended up making this 9.5 inches wide. I think that’s ok given the hand of the yarn and the neck this thing is made for (a child’s).

I also - accidentally, truth be told, managed to twist the stitches (it’s a long story). So this thing is a mobius cowl. Not generally my fave kind of structure - though (again) in this yarn it works well.

Were I to make this again I would go down to a size 10 needle.

One thing I cannot complain about even slightly: the yarn is fantastic. The colour, the feel, the way it knits - I would totally knit with this in the future
