Today’s scarf is a pseudo-cowl. It’s another Enterlac piece that I made.
My first blog post about Entrelac can be read here, my very first Scarf of the Day. This wasn’t really a pattern in the book but just the tutorials in the beginning included how to do Entrelac in a triangle.
I had bought three skins of Lion Brands Hometown USA, I knit something up but didn’t like it. So when it was all done I undid it and made something else.
I ended up not liking that either so I undid it and made this instead.
I love the way it ended up and how the colors helped enhance the pattern. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get something right.
Have you ever finished a project just to undo it and start over again?
Today’s scarf is more of a cowl. And this I knit on a loom instead of by hand.
I got into loom knitting when I was in high school as a way to make scarves quickly. Casting on and casting off was difficult for me but eventually I got the hang of it and even got the whole set.
I had a big skein of this coral type color in my stash so I decided to loom knit it on one of the biggest ones. So when I ran out of yarn and it was very long I decided to make it into a cowl and seam up the back. I even put a twist in it.
It’s luxurious and warm. And it’s nice because I can pull it up to me ears if there’s a chill in the air.
