Supercowl is done!
This is one of my own designs, which I came up with whilst doodling at work. It was knit in the round, joined at each end and then steeked down the middle to open it up. The edging is a steek sandwich (tutorial here) with an I-cord join to close.
The yarn for the body of the cowl is from the lovely Penelope Craft shop in Amsterdam in their Dutch Yarns brand. The grey is Gotland lambswool and the white is Swifter (which Google tells me is a Dutch breed) and the yellow contrast is Jamiesons Shetland Spindrift in Yellow Ochre which I already had in my stash and then had to buy more of as I used so much holding it double. When it came to the edging I had run out of the Gotland lambswool, but tracked down a really good match with Blacker Yarns Dark Gotland.
It was a lot of knitting and charting, but I am really, really pleased with this one!
Mrs. Tishell has knitted Martin a going away present, but he doesn’t really appreciate it.
I really enjoy patterns like this where no one makes the same shaped object as the original. Every cat that everyone made is different, not only from the original, but each other’s as well. I’d say the word ART right here, but…
Although this does suck if you’re making a garment. But if you’re making cats its great! Fill a room with ‘em!
