I started the Dolores Park cowl in January this year. It got laid by the wayside but I was determined to finish it this weekend. And I love it!!! It’s simple, the pattern was well-written and turned out to be very chic.
A few days after I started Dolores, I went to Homegoods (love this store!!! ) and found Candace. I thought she’d be a great addition to showcase my knitted and crochet wearable items and I was right. I loved her Parisienne print and while I was debating if I should bring her home I got into conversation with an older Polish woman about sewing and crafting. Nothing like crafty related goods to start up a conversation!!!
So here’s Candace and Dolores! 🙂
- Pattern Name: Dolores Park Cowl
- Yarn Used: Knitpicks Swish Bulky in Saffron (137 yds) — colour has been discontinued. 1 skein.
- Yardage Used: approx. 135 yds
- Needles: 10 – 11
- Techniques learned: Make 1 (between two knit stitches)
I used almost all of the yardage on this project and although one of my make 1 increases didn’t twist like it should, I still call this project a win!!!!! 🙂 It’s one of my YOP (Year of Projects) 2012 list; it’s good to be able to cross another one off. 🙂
