Well, I found a cowl that I really liked and wanted to make. As usual, I made a few “tweaks” to the pattern, and by “tweaks” I mean I COMPLETELY CHANGED IT. It’s the Amanda Cowl and it’s knit in the round with a lovely stitch pattern.
I decided I wanted it knit flat, with buttons, instead of being over-the-head. Which means I needed to convert every other row. Usually very easy, in this case, I made a couple of mis-steps, and had to restart it twice. Normal for me. OK, so here I am:
and it is biasing like crazy. Guess I should have kept this particular stitch pattern in the round. Guess the designer knew what she was doing when she wrote the pattern, eh?
Will it block into a rectangle? We’ll see…
It’s intended for a gift. If it doesn’t block well, I can always sacrifice (cough-cough) and keep it for myself.
