X-Factor Cowl from Field Guide No. 10: Downtown

#1

Hi all- I have started knitting a cowl from “Downtown” and this is the first time I’m knitting double garter stitch- fun! Many firsts for me with MDK field guides😀. My question is - do I purl rows 3 and 8 with double wraps? Or do I purl each individual wrap? (96 stitches). Or do I purl two together? Please help! I shall soldier on trying all 3 of my suggestions to see which one looks right in the meantime.

The purl rows are worked as normal purls with the exception of row 8(I think it’s row 8-I don’t have the pattern right here) where you’ll
Purl 5 [yo, p2tog] one time, then purl to the end of the row.
I hope I’ve answered your questions-I’m on my phone and can’t refer back to your question. I also seem to have created a new MDK identity. Nell

I’m back on my trusty computer and see that the row I referred to above should have been row 4, not row 8.
All of the stitches are knit or purled as usual, with no double wrapping. xo

Hi Nell

Thank you so much! I can now carry on​:grinning:. I’m not sure that my yarn is quite right but I have a lot of it so I’m keen to make it work. I’ll post a pic when done- hopefully this year!:joy:

Hahahaha! I dont know why my “grinning” emoji shows as text and didn’t show as a picture. It looks as though I’m gormlessly just going to carry on grinning instead of knitting. Ah well, nothing wrong with grinning whilst knitting. It will beat my usual knitting face#frowning#eyebrowsraised#cursing
