I've named this the Etna Cowl.....why?
Because it's going to be mailed to Mt. Etna, Italy.....
Where it's cold,,,,,windy......and well, because my family is always willing to receive handknitted projects from dear ol' mom.
Even if they don't fit, not the best of color selection....but this one.......
I think this one is a winner!!!
Here's the skinny on what I used and such:
Four skeins of Katia Ethnic - color 6507
Size 13 Circular Needles - 36" long
Cast On - 80 stitches
Join....careful not to twist....or, perhaps a nice twist would be the perfect touch.
Rows 1 & 2
Knit 2, Purl 3
I continued in this pattern....round and round.....
I kept going until I was out of yarn and ended with a knit row and cast off.
I love the color, the thickness.....I have baby kid yarn that I may someday make another and keep....
we'll see, I have at least 20 other projects in the works to complete first - that's the 2012 plan.
Finish what I have and stay out of the yarn shops.
