I'll be totally honest up front: this project was a procrastination project. Sure, it was also a project that I started because I wanted to practice continental seed stitch, of which I am now a boss, but truthfully, this project came out of a desire to stashbust in a desperate attempt to avoid the heel turn of some lovely socks that I'm just now finishing up and will be posting on soon, hopefully.
Late Night Seed Stitch Cowl
Started: September 2014
Finished: October 15, 2014
Fiber: Wool sock yarn
Notes: This cowl was as simple as can be, and was very effective in helping me to master the seed stitch pattern knitting continentally. Here's the pattern, in case anyone is interested:
Cast on 54 stitches
R1: *K1, P1* repeat until end of row
R2: *P1, K1* repeat until end of row
Continue until you've eaten up an entire skein, cast off and sew into a loop.
I love the seed stitch, which is amazing for how much of it I just finished. It's reversible, it's easy and mindless. I'm calling this the late night seed stitch cowl because with B's schedule lately, he's been hitting the hay super early. I would often stay up, watch Netflix documentaries and just knit, purl, knit, purl until I was ready for sleep. Knitting is great therapy, after all. And now all of this squishy wool goodness is ushering in fall! Happy happy day!
