Pattern: Purl SoHo's Braided Cable Cowl
Yarn: Purl Soho's Merino Script in Super Pink
Needle Size: US 11
BGITWWW modeled the unfinished cowl incognito in my vintage Bollé shades. Hence the cornball name InCowlNeato.
With only 11 rows and seaming left I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH YARN to finish this. One skein has a 6" tail while the other skein has about 4 yards -- still not enough to double and finish. If both skeins ended with the longer tail I might have had a chance...
I used the provisional cast on for this project. I have not decided if I will use a 3 needle bind off or the kitchner Stitch (which I have never done before).
Super Pink is shockingly neon.
Daughter-who-doesn't-knit loves the color and the softness of the yarn. When she saw this wip it was half done. I noticed a cable knitted in the wrong direction so I frogged to row 4 (yes, row 4) that very same night.
I knit a few rows every day and ticked off each row as I completed them. Using highlighters I highlighted "cables front" in pink and "cables back" in yellow. No more cables in the wrong direction!
The yarn is soft but it has fuzzies and matts so I keep it on tissue paper when I knit or lay it out to check for errors. I can't wait to see how the seaming goes.
