Maybe it was a bit hasty when I announced in my Wednesday Yarn Along post that I would have a finished pattern for you to test knit on Sunday. I don’t have one. I knitted and reknitted the collar yesterday. And while I got quite a similar look to the picture of the cowl, the drape is so not how it is suppossed to be. Too stiff, standing up rather then softly falling… And because I was really annoyed by this I thought I might as well start knitting my second test version.I chose a bunch of blue and white yarns for it. With them I rechecked gauge, rechecked my notes and tried another bind off method. I think it looks a little neater with an icord bind off. And I could now write down the pattern for everything except the collar. But I don’t want to share that with you without knowing where the story ends. So I procrastinated the whole day. I prepared dozens of pictures for my blog and finally send my Nail Polish page live. I also prepared six more posts. And now I will retry to knit the collar.
TEST KNITTERS WANTED (and sorry the email address was missing a dot):
But so that you don’t leave empty handed I can start giving you information to prepare for the test knitting. To all of you test knitters out there: if you would like to test knit my pattern, send me an email to k(dot)schnorr(at)gmx(dot)de then I’ll send you the first notes to get the yarn and needles needed, to knit gauge and practice the pattern.
A comment on the original post on this cowl got me thinking. I might have found a different way than crocheting around cord to get the rolls. What do you think about this look?
I know this is an absolutely bad picture but the best I could make at night and without help, but I guess I did it! Better pictures and more info on Tuesday when Michael is home and can take pictures of me and my work.
