Finished Object: Sallah Cowl

Untitled

Pattern: “Sallah Cowl” by Bristol Ivy
Made For: myself
Needle: US 5/3.75 mm & US 10/6mm
Yarn: “La Jolla” from Baah!
Completed: February 27, 2014

This was mostly knit on the bus over the course of about a month. I did bring it along to a couple shifts at the yarn store, partly because I had made a mistake during the increases and needed some help to fix it and partly because it was the lightest, simplest project I had on needles.

Anyway, this was a fun stitch and I love how it turned out — it looks like fish scales to me! The cowl itself is a bit tall, but will be really nice if next winter has as many below 0° days as this winter has had. I love the color of the yarn, though — a bright pop of pink and a little bit of neon green is a welcome change from the grey tones of winter.

As a side note, this was the fourth Knitty pattern I’ve worked on. One more to complete a 101 in 1001 goal!
