Knitting Notes


Pattern: Starshower by Hilary Smith Callis
Yarn: Tess’ Designer Yarns Peruvian sock in the Seabreeze colorway
Needles: Size 7 circs

The construction of this cowl is really interesting.   It starts flat, and is eventually joined to be knit in the round.    Once in the round, the main pattern repeat is more easily done on the wrong side, so you flip the work when you’re knitting those rows, so you can better see the pattern.     That was cool, and kept things interesting.

You really do need to block this pattern, but I don’t like how the pattern instructed you to do it – it basically put a line straight across your chest.    So I do need to reblock this before I can wear it.
