As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been knitting a lot of projects for myself lately and the little one decided I needed to knit something for HER!
She picked out the yarn before Christmas and originally it was going to be a hat, but after seeing how comfy the cowls I’ve been making are, she decided she wanted one for herself instead.
I made it with Cascade Yarns’ Pacific Chunky which is a 60/40 blend of wool and acrylic. Just enough wool to be warm, just enough acrylic that it’s soft enough for a 9 year old’s neck.
It’s a basic seed stitch (or is it moss? I can’t remember) – K1P1 all the way around. I cast on 75 and did 3 rows straight knitting to give it a rolled edge and then finished with another rolled edge for symmetry.
I think it turned out really pretty. The color is lovely – very rich looking – and I didn’t want any fancy stitch patterns to compete with the beautiful color.
If you’re a Raveler, I’ve raveled it so you are welcome to add it to your queue if you like, although the pattern’s so simple, you don’t really need one.
I think she likes it, don’t you?
