My Friend Jean - revisited

My Friend Jean cowl
July 2017
My Friend Jean is off the needles and blocked. As predicted in an earlier post, I had enough yarn to knit 20 of the 32 lace pattern rows. The blocked cowl is 5 inches wide, and with the full pattern, it would probably be close to 7 or 8 inches.

The single skein that I used was only 50 grams: a 100 gram skein would result in a wider cowl. The pattern has directions for a small, medium, and large cowl (length), and I knit the large because even with a narrower cowl, I wanted it to be long enough to loop around the neck two times.

I think my first, chart knit project turned out pretty good.

A squishy package arrived in Friday's mail - a felted zip bag from Kathyb. She drew my name from those who sent twiddle mitts in memory of her mother. Thanks, Kathyb

  2. The cowl turned out beautifully. I think being narrow is very pretty. And such a pretty bag from Kathryn. You are a lucky girl. :-). Blessings, Betsy

  7. Very pretty pattern in that knitted cowl. I imagine some people prefer a narrower cowl so the width could be good.
