Beloved Berlin was designed for the fourth (!!!) meeting-the-gang weekend that will take place in Berlin. Again, the goal was to keep the knitting easy enough to be able to giggle and babble and have a glass of red wine (or two…). It is a snuggly cowl that is done in 3 colors using a fun and easy eyelet pattern for the outer layer, followed by a color pop at the upper edge and a lovely striped lining that peeks through the eyelets. Entirely knitted in the round, there are only a few ends to weave in ;)
