Okay, I promise. THIS is the last holiday gift that I needed to share from last year. I saved the best for last! I wanted to knit something for my mom in her favorite color – but she’s a really good knitter, so I needed it to be extra special. Given my obsession with cables, I figured this would be perfect. I adapted this pattern to make a cowl – I just sewed the ends together when I thought it would be long enough.
Since it’s a little chunky, I wanted it to be shorter, but I also didn’t want it to look like a big weird turtleneck, so I added a twist for extra interest.
It’s definitely nice and warm… I’m happy with how it turned out! I think this pattern would make a cool pillow too. So, this about wraps up knitting season for me. It may be hard for you to believe, but I’m a little burned out on knitting at the moment! I’m still dreaming about knitted pillow covers, however, so we will see how long that lasts.
