Seed Stitch Cowl

Hello, I finished my second cowl! It was a very slow work but I am happy with how it turned out :) As I mentioned on my last facebook post, I have to start the new cowl because my first one went wrong. I didn't throw the yarn but I removed the stitch and rolled again for other purpose.

Well, before I explain more, here I am wearing it with my yellow sweatshirt. Once again only for the photos :) Finally the weather is getting colder but not yet cold enough to wear a very warm cowl.


Materials:
4 balls yarns, 2 in white and 2 in light cream. Both are pure new wool
Circular needle size 7 mm
Tapestry needle

Pattern:
Seed Stitch Cowl with Stefanie Japel Shown here on the video
The cowl was using double stranded,
Cast on 101 STS and join to work in the round.
Round 1: *K1,P1*K1
Round 2: *P1,K1*P1
Repeat rounds 1 and 2 until the size I want
Bind Off in seed stitch and weave in ends. Done!

Here is my process, it was a very slow work and I don't remember how long it takes :) Also, I learn a new technique to attach a new yarn "The Russian Join". I followed the tutorial from VeryPink Knits and I love it :)


And here are the final pictures of the cowl, I hope you can see the mixing yarns in the second picture :)





Happy Knitting!

  2. Seed stitch has such a yummy texture! It's worth the extra fussing in the knitting. Love that creamy white with your sunny yellow top!
