A cowl for Mr J
A couple of months ago the lovely JoAnna Spring from the Knit Spin Farm podcast gifted me a pattern. I chose the Strider Cowl by Susan Pandorf and decided it would make a good birthday present for Mr J!!
I spun up some silver and charcoal merino and plied them to make the cowl and as the yarn was a bit chunkier than what the pattern called for I took out a couple of repeats!!
Mr J was very pleased with his not so secret knit for his birthday!! I felt the barber poled yarn detracted a little from the beautiful patterning. I will knit this again though and make it in a plainer yarn!!
