Raise your glass if you hate swatching! We all know how important it is with sweater knitting, but it can feel so unproductive! How about a useful swatch? One that can be worn, cherished, or even gifted. Laura’s Third Coast Cowl uses the same beautiful stitch pattern as her Third Coast pullover in issue seven : michigan, so cast on a cowl as your sweater swatch, or just knit the cowl on its own. It’s a great way to practice the cable technique without using a cable needle, so the sweater will fly off your needles! Cheers!
