I wanted to showcase one of my variegated yarns and decided to also design a new cowl pattern. It’s going to be called A Day at the Pond, featuring my “DragonFly Dreams” colorway. I’ve gotten good at “frogging”, which knitters call ripping out a project because we typical say, “rip it, rip it” which sounds like a frog ribbetting. Funny huh? The reason I’ve had to rip my design out a few times is because some of the stitches created too loose a fabric and the ribbed edging flipped up onto the stockinette and it wouldn’t lie flat. Well, I’ve fixed it by having a ribbed design.
I was walking in the neighborhood and thought, why not knit? My pattern stitch repeat is only 12 stitches and three rows so it’s very easy to memorize. The only issue I found was that I kept knitting past my third row because I was enjoying knitting and walking so I had more knitting to frog. Oh well, I was knitting right?!
I like the pattern because it’s breaking up the colors in the yarn so they don’t pool together. I hope to have this posted on Ravelry by the end of the month and will post when it’s available.
