You guys know I’m a big sweater knitter. I love a great big, weeks- (or months-) long project that I can really sink my teeth into. And if it’s a pattern that I’m making up as I go along, and documenting the whole thing, even better!
But sometimes, there’s nothing better than finding a great pattern and banging out a project in a little over a week.
This little cowl is one of those projects.
It’s finished! And it’s super cute!
It’s not perfect (the decreases are a little weird, and I don’t love how the CO edge pulls a little, compared to the super-stretchy brioche fabric), but I don’t mind. The pattern was quick to work up, and the finished object is cute and totally wearable. It was a super fun little knit. I’m not going to say it was “easy”, but once I got my brain around the whole brioche thing, it was pretty straightforward.
One thing I really love is how it’s totally reversible! The big color-blocks on the right side are fun, but I kind of love the way the contrasting colors peek out between the bright blue ribs. (It’s even prettier, and more glow-y in person!)
This is definitely a piece that I intend to wear a lot in the future!
Have you finished up any fun, quick projects recently?
Been crocheting recently (talk about quick!) And making slouch hats. Very fun!
