I did have to break into the second skein to finish up the first cowl. But I didn’t really need much of it at all, which left me feeling like I should make a second, smaller piece as well. I wasn’t feeling the cuff vibe (the yarn is a bit thick for that). And lovely thought that stitch is, it’s not really inclined to be a hat. So I thought I’d see if I couldn’t do a second cowl, just at the other end of the size range.
It’s a slight variation on the same stitch (amazing what happens if you nudge half a pattern repeat over), and it’s coming out quite nicely (once I remembered how to count to five, which is apparently sometimes harder than you’d think). I might even get it finished up this weekend.
