I finished t his a few weeks ago, but didnt' get around to taking a photo until yesterday.
it's a bias knit cowl, provisional cast on and grafting the ends togeterh (or of course you can sew them together and not do a proviaional CO, or do a 3 needle cast off).
It's a very simple pattern, mosaic knitting and short rows to shape the bottom. Very addictive!
When I read clue 2, which has you knit until the top edge is 16", or longer for a double loop. I stopped knitting. I honestly didn't think about it going over my head, and did think it was uncharacteristically unclear. It blocked out though, and I'm very happy with it. Pity I didn't actually read clue 3, which has the instructions as to when to stop!!
A very pretty pattern, with so many variations. The red colour is Noro DK and has hardly any variation in colour. I have a few other balls but they included some darker colors and I didn't fancy cutting them out. I can see this done with mini skeins, or odball stash.
The next pattern from Knitvent 2016 has been released and I've decided not to knit it. It's a hat to match the Boreal forest cowl, I found some light/dark aran yarn for that, but there's not enough left to knit the hat (and I can't find it!). I have a few hats in the GAL so will cast on one of those over the weekend. The first pattern (shawl) is still at the 50% mark and the socks are going well, I've turned the heel on the second sock and it's dk so will go very quickly. I've picked up a sore throat lurgy which has made me feel really tired, so not much knitting will be done over the weekend. At the moment I jut want to get home and sleeeeep!
