Part of the TFA 2012 KAL
Modifications: None – done as is, and I even used the yarn the pattern called for, which may be a first!
- Button Holes – Technically I have done buttonholes before, but it has been a while and I think I have a better hang of it this time.
- Bobbles – While I have done nupps a few times now this is my first time with bobbles. I must say the extra row of stitches (and the fact you aren’t doing p7tog) make bobbles more fun than nupps.
- Yarn: As I said with the earband, Tanis has amazing colors, but the Green Label isn’t my favorite, it is just a bit too twisty and hard, but those attributes made it the right yarn for this pattern.
- Pattern: A great finished product but I did find the pattern a touch confusing, my interpretation T2L/T2R twisted stitch resulted in some trouble until I found a Knitting Daily link. Also the explanation of the button location seemed needlessly complex. I think just a bit of tech editing would make a world of difference as of the three members of the guild who have made it this month, all three of us had troubles on the T2L/T2R stitches and two of us has some troubles on the buttonhole placement.
Re-Knit?: Nope, too many cowls not enough time! But I would recommend it to others as a great single skein project.
