I’m still knitting that “checkered cowl”. I haven’t had too much time to knit, but I try to knit a few rows weekly.
The stitch pattern is stockinette and seed stitch. It’s simple, but I really like how this knitted cowl looks. If you look closely, you’ll see metal rings. That lets me know that I need to swap my stitch pattern. I’m almost finished. I think I’ll do one more “section of blocks” before I tuck it away. I still haven’t decided on who will receive this handcrafted item, but I’ll make sure the person actually wants something like this.
Since I used size 3 knitting needles, the stitches are tightly woven together and will do a great job blocking out the cold winds that might blow.
