Hope everyone is doing well. These past few days have been very cold here in the south with temps dipping below freezing. With the frigid weather, I went out last night after work and got some firewood to make a fire. It was the first one this season!
It was absolutely amazing. There’s nothing better than a crackling fire and some knitting to soothe away the tensions of the day.
Speaking of knitting, last week I finished a cowl that I had been working on for the past couple of weeks. Those of you who have been keeping up with me via social media have seen the progress of this cowl and as promised, I am posting it up today.
This cowl, called the Irish Mesh Cowl, was knitted previously using Knit Picks’ Billow yarn in Tea Rose (shown below). I designed this cowl about six months ago and am now revisiting it and will share the pattern with you all.
The revisited version is done Ash. Note: Knit Picks Billow yarn is cotton and the yarn weight varies even though it is listed as Bulky Weight. If you want your cowl to look a little more uniform, I recommend using a different type of yarn.
After blocking, the Irish Mesh Cowl in Ash measures about 30″ circumference and 11″ wide and is slightly smaller than the one in Tea Rose (I don’t remember the measurements).
