Notes

Love this cowl!

--------------------Mods--------------------

  • Since the bind off uses color A only, I wanted to cast on with color B only to balance it off.

  • I didn’t make as many pattern repeats as the pattern was calling for; I kept it to 20 for the cowl portion and 15 for the yoke.

  • I made a small mod to the I-cord bind off. Instead of CO 3 sts using a cable CO method, I used a provisional CO, worked the bind-off normally then joined the beginning and the end together using kitchener’s stitch.
