Garter Stockinette Cowl

Cowl or infinity scarf they are great, I decided to use one skein of my Cascade bulky leisure Alpaca & Cotton blend yarn for this cowl, I had purchase two skein on sale at my local yarn store.

I started to make a garter stitch cowl, since I have not yet learned to use a circular needle, I used a US size 11 knitting needles and went with a straight garter stitch pattern like my first scarf but with a twist.

I found that a yarn can inspire a design, this yarn is a fuzzy boucle, so some parts are thicker than others, but with such a special yarn I wanted to create more interest in the garment. To break up the garter stitch I created a random pattern by adding a bit of stockinette stitch.

The cowl took me two days to complete after I found the size I prefer, also add two days of designing and knitting then starting over or frogging back as it is called in the knitting vocab.

I finished the cowl yesterday, I used the seaming and steam blocking technique I learn from the knit lab, I was so happy with my completed cowl I wore it out last night..sweet.




First Cowl

My love for travel, history and exploring started with books, my natural curiosity did the rest.

Early July 2017

Off to the races I went on a tour of Belmont Park Race Track, the place is huge and makes me wonder what it is like when they have the Belmont Stakes. There were plenty of people having picnics at the park, others there for the races.
