A friend of mine has been working on a cowl with a rosette stitch that requires a bit of keeping track of rows to make sure you get the right pattern. Well, after a few miscounts she took to calling it the scowl cowl…sadly it appears I have my own scowl cowl in the making.
I’ve been working on the Bandana Cowl, figuring it would be a good way to start expanding my knitting repertoire. It’s taken a couple tries to get the short rows figured out, and I’m still not certain I am doing what the pattern says. I however claimed a small victory over the short row (the is a v shape and I have the called for 81 stitches) and moved on to the next part of the pattern. Here I misunderstood what they wanted and had to rip out and redo a portion. Ugh. I’m finally back on track with my very own scowl cowl, and hopefully I can get it done without any further troubles. Here is the progress to date.
