Sea Breeze Cowl—I'M GOING IN


#1

Anybody else starting this? I’m gonna try it in a bulky yak-wool blend, because using the right gauge yarn is far too reasonable, and probably yak feels just like cotton in Heat Wave July, amirite?

Consider me your cautionary tale.


#2

Definitely going to make mine as soon as I finish the Sail-Away Shawl. Tomorrow we’re launching the Great MDK Ease-along here in the Lounge—be sure to show us how that yak is coming along . . .


#3

I’ll be going in eventually too. Too many things I want to make. Not sure what order!



#4

I’m in with my Olive-Inspired Mini version of the Sea Breeze Cowl. I’m using Knitted Wit’s Smoky Mountain National Park in Bulky Weight, getting 4 stitches to the inch. The cast on is 96 stitches and I’ve followed the directions as written. I won’t shape it but will probably bind off after the 2nd repeat of the Criss-Cross pattern. If my calculations are correct this is a one skein project and will measure approximately 9 x 22, perfect for buttoning a coat over.


#5

I’m away from this project while traveling for a couple of weeks but can’t wait to get back to it. Now that Kay’s written about it, I feel compelled to check the order of each stitch in the first doodle-do round! Can’t have any twisted doodles.

I am excited to join in on some Ease with the Sea Breeze Cowl-Poncho. Swatching is complete, using Shibui Knits Drift from stash (and maybe a few more skeins on order from MDK!). What a fun pattern! After teaching my last summer classes Friday and Saturday, joining in on the Ease fun on Sunday will be a treat!
