Bust the Stash Project 2

I decided to stick with the 280 stitches for cast on (as I did with the last version). I don’t love joining in the round with massive numbers of stitches. More chances to twist things up - and I do think that the length of the cowl is good at 280 stitches. I do intend to repeat the eyelet pattern 3.5 times (instead of the 2.5 times done last time) because I have more than enough yarn. I think I can finish this one @425 yards (I only had 366 yards to do the entire cowl last time, hence mods that didn’t quite work). I’ll still have to figure out what to do with the remaining @ 200 yards when this is done.

280 stitch cast on, full pattern takes 413 yards of fingering yarn - call it 425 to be on the safe side.


The finished cowl is awesome. Full stop. I love the drape, the yarn, the pattern, the way it blocked, the way it hangs, the way it feels. Great little project. Someone’s going to be happy with this…


Kam was the recipient and I know she’s happy with it.
