FO: Irish Mesh Cowl

Things have gone beyond crazy, lately. I will not bore you with details, but I will say that it's not likely to let up so blogging will remain sporadic. Despite the madness, crafting continues. I have got a bit of a backlog of things to tell you about, but first up is a pretty straightforward cowl I finished a few weeks ago.


Yarn: Bar T'at Sock in Daffodil
Pattern: Irish Mesh Cowl
Mods: An extra pattern repeat to make it wider, plus a few extra rows to sort out the symmetry of that. In the pattern, there are 5 pattern rows in the first block, then 4, then 5; I did 5-5-5-5.


I'm very happy with the result. I think the variegated yarn and the pattern work well together. The stitch pattern was pretty easy to learn, after a little care the for the first few, and after that is became a doddle.


It goes around twice...


...and even three times for a snug fit, which is super-cosy and probably best worn with a thick winter coat. 

Another FO! Another one bites the dust :) Find more at Tami's Amis

  1. Lovely cowl. I like it best when it's wrapped around your neck tightly. :-)
