TWIK: Just because …

I haven’t touched my needles since last week because of my apt leak and I’m getting antsy.  Tonight, I had to get something done so I cast the following project on:

The original pattern uses Debbie Bliss Como and a size 10mm needle but I’m using the needles required for the yarn I’m using which are half the size.  😳 and the yarn is worsted weight.  Due to the fullness of the pattern, I think using a thinner weight yarn would work better for me.   I’m anticipating having to do seven repeats instead of five so the cowl could fit around my neck but that’s okay, since I’ve already done one repeat in about 30 mins. 

I’m definitely looking forward to getting this done.  😀

      It really is. I finished mine in the worsted pattern but am so considering doing this in bulky yarn. I really do love the pattern.

    I really dig this cowl pattern. I haven’t used it yet, but I see so many people say good things about Malibrigo. There are so many great colors from which to choose.

      I like the pattern because it’s kinda NorthEast funky. 😀

      Malabrigo … what can I say? I didn’t get the obsession with this yarn until I actually got some. Trust me, it’s worth the $$$. I haven’t had a bad experience yet.

    Oooh, I like the pattern, very pretty 🙂 I love Debbie Bliss Como, but I would think it would make a seriously warm cowl, your plan sounds much better to me!
