So here’s a thing I have been working on for about a week and a half or so. No pattern, just a concept. I chose my circular knitting needles size 11. Grabbed some Simply Soft yarn, color – grey, from my yarn stash. Then I cast on 200 stitches and knit in a circular fashion until I ran out of yarn. 24 rows, about 6 inches. Then, I switched to black and knit 24 rows, switched back to grey and will continue for 24 rows.
So, my plan is to try a bind off which incorporates crochet, called Long-Chain Bind Off. Also called Crochet Bind Off, Crocheting Off. (I can do that!) Here’s the book I recently acquired. It’s a great resource. Although I have got a lot to learn first.
Once I get my cowl off the sticks, I plan to put a lovely crochet edging along the bottom edge. This will take care of the curling . . . right??? I am having trouble deciding though. I have just about a full skein of black yarn left to work with. I have it narrowed down to a couple patterns each from two different books.
Or, there are some nice choices from . . .
So, I have my heart set on this project. I will finish this one! But first, I need some feedback please. 😀
Ta ta for now!
As I preview this post (over and over!) I am thinking the last edging I have shown is quite lovely, and fitting for the project. But . . . the flowers are nice too! (Says the world’s worst decision maker.)
