this was a really fun project. my christmas knitting project 2013. started 20th december and finished 7th january. normally i don’t have much time to knit on a normal day. just a few hours max after lukas is in bed. but over christmas there were grandparents to entertain the little bugger so i had a little more knitting time.
the yarn of this cowl is so LUSH! i can’t get over it. it’s cosy and warm and just aaaaawwww! i bought this yarn on our trip to new zealand and it contains 60% merino and 40% possum. i guess that’s what makes it so soft and cosy. i can also highly recommend the pattern. it’s easy to knit and memorize without ever getting boring. perfect for knitting in front of the tv.
i did 25 repeats of the leaf pattern. the wavy pattern has 10 rows, the leaf pattern has 16 rows. –> so the least common multiple is 80 rows. –> this equals 5 repeats of the leaf pattern. –> so any multiple of 5 leaf repeats works fine!
i never blocked this project because i liked the texture the way it was. and i didn’t want it to become longer. it is just perfect for wrapping it round the neck twice.
pattern: the danish forests by marte eldøy
