introducing the rib random cowl
Using 5.5mm needles, I cast on 79 stitches, Just because I like the number and used a random number generator set between 1 and 5 to determine the knits and purls to make up random part of the ribs. The ribs are whatever it came up with, there are every combination from balanced k1p1 ribs, to k5p3, and quite a bit of k1p5 or k5p1. Endless possibility.
eta, because I neglected to write this bit up on the first go: about halfway through I increased on stitched approximately every 10 stitches for 8 increases total. I tried to fit this into the purl parts of the ribs doing a kfb at the last k part of the rib section when possible. I then knit until I ran out of yarn.
I’ll try to get a human modeled shot soon. It came out much larger than I initially expected and I am very pleased with how it came out. I have yet to give it the Penny Superwash Test, and will report back once I try to abuse it.
Which colour(s) would you purchase this cowl in to wear this cool weather season?
Yes, I am getting closer to setting up my shop, some necessary paperwork was mailed out today. I find this much scarier than setting up my other business, even though the risk is significantly less.
