Started out on US 5 as pattern calls for with crochet provisional cast on and doing the yarn-overs, but really prefer the look of the store sample without the yarnovers, and my fabric was more open than the sample in the store appeared. Ripped, restarted with a judy’s magic caston onto an interchangable cable with a smaller needle and will use the lifted increases as in the more advanced pattern.
(update: now on the third stripe and the lifted increases may now be my favorite increase)
now that I am almost halfway through the cowl, I am questioning my decision to go down a needle size. the cowl at this point is looking v short. throwing ideas around in my head for what I’m going to do if i have quite a bit of yarn left to get more length out of it….
