My WIP (work in progress) this week is a cowl, one of several I’m auditioning to see if I can find a nice one to make as Christmas gifts. This is a free Ravelry pattern (https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baa-baa-huey-handspun-gradient-cowl) which is written for gradient yarn, but I’m using bits of scrap yarn to make mine.
For this portion, I’m using #5 circular needles and Lion Brand Pound of Love #4 thin yarn. So far, it’s within my early-intermediate skill level and working out nicely. I’ll soon be going into a lace portion which usually gives me trouble.
My finished project for last week was another cowl made in a child’s size from a free Ravelry pattern, https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/little-green-elf-cowl. I used #7 circular needles and Lion Brand Pound of Love #4 thin yarn. I had my usual problems with lace but it’s a very nice, well written pattern – the problems were totally my fault. It’s not exactly what I was looking for but makes a good neck warmer.
