FO Friday ~ Abstract Cowl

Hooray for Friday! 

First off, thank you for your kind comments on yesterday’s post.  Art journaling is something I’ve really come to enjoy.  I’ve been hesitant to share here since I have much to learn and improve.  I really appreciate your encouragement.

Now to the FO Friday knitting . . .

Pattern  ::  Kudo Half Linen Stitch Cowl
Yarn  ::  Red Heart Boutique Treasure, abstract colorway
Needle  ::  US 10 (6 mm)

This was such a fun cowl to knit.  The pattern is a free download on Ravelry and well worth a try.  It’s almost as if this yarn was made for linen stitch.  With only 30% wool, the edges curl slightly, but I’m sure a nice steam blocking will put that to right.  A seed stitch border, rather than garter, might help also.  I have a full skein left and found this fingerless mitt pattern to match the cowl.  This will be a cute set for the Christmas box.

Enjoy your Friday and have a great weekend!

  1. Wow – that is real pretty. I really thought that was hand spun at first. I will have to add that to the list of patterns to try, especially for Christmas.

  2. Lovely! As soon as I read “Christmas Box” a penny dropped for me! I bet you have a big ol’ box that collects pretty knitted things all year so you’ve got a nice little gift stash at Christmas time! Brilliant!
