Daisy at Downton
Pattern: Downton Cowl by Shannon Cook
Yarn: Shibui Knits Merino Kid (discontinued) in Peacock
Needles: US 8
In the interest of finishing something for a luvinthemommyhood KAL for the first time since last summer, I abandoned ship on my Sybil sweater (temporarily) and cast on a Downton Cowl! I'm glad I did! I love it! I was able to de-stash a bit of yarn from a sweater I knit a couple years ago that I've been a little stumped about, so that was an added bonus.
I added two chart repeats for a deeper cowl. I'm glad I did. It stands a little taller for more neck protection in the wind. I still have a bit of the yarn left. I think I'll chuck it in my "all used up" bag so I don't have to agonize over it anymore, but it will still be handy if something does come along. The rich color bleeds like crazy. I glad I knew from the sweater so I was sure to rinse it completely. No green on my light grey coat! Win!
