here a cowl, there a cowl, everywhere a cowl, cowlSaturday, May 17, 2008
Wow. I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am for all of my sweet comments on Ruby. Thank you so much! Every single one of them brought a huge smile to my face.
I actually made this cowl back at the beginnin of February. Or the end of January. I really can't remember, but sometime around then.
I used the basic pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, using Classic Elite, Charmed. The softest coziest yarn ever. I did a gauge for the yarn, and came up with the number of stitches to make it the same measurements as the one in the book. 20 X 13. So, I got 4 stitches to the inch, therefore, I cast on 80 stitches. (4 x 20) See, you can use any yarn you have at home just sitting around looking pretty. And looking like it should become another cowl.
