On my birthday, I usually wear new clothes, this year (today!) I will wear a knit cowl-poncho along with my dress! I knit this cute elbow length cowl/poncho in late spring this year. It was actually featured as a movie poster 😉
At first glance, it might look like a little skirt but I love how it turned out! This project is actually the first big needles project that allowed me to enjoy knitting & finish quickly. This will be nice & cosy in autumn-winter, wouldn’t it?
Pattern: Fig Big Cowl on Ravelry
Yarn: Super bulky wool
Needles: 10 mm
My take on the pattern:
- Used 10 mm needles instead of 9 mm & I didn’t change the size after a few rows like many suggested.
- Made a second increase after 10 rows of first increase.
- Seed stitch to define borders at top & bottom.
I also learned to make ‘jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off’ technique when I made this cowl/poncho. Very useful & less stressful!
