It’s a scarf/hoodie. Or a hooded cowl. Or perhaps something else, I’m not quite sure. What I do know is it’s very cute.
The pattern is called Morning Glory (link to designer on Etsy). It could not be easier to make! It only took a few hours and a little over one skein of Caron’s Simply Soft Eco in Wine Country.
First you knit a cowl with a few pretty cables traveling horizontally across it.
Then you attach a hood.
Wear it up.
Wear it down.
It’s very snuggly and warm.
In all honesty, this project wasn’t meant for me. It was supposed to be for my husband. It’s been very cold and he wants something to wear under his coat and hat to keep his neck warm (and he lost the last TWO neck warmers I made for him). But once it was finished the style didn’t quite suit him. So I happily claimed it! I have another pattern in mind for dear husband’s cold neck (and lots of smooches, too).
I’ve also finished one Viking sock. Half way there! Love the pattern.
And tonight I finished the back of my wool sweater, which I’ve dubbed “Hot Chocolate.”
I adore the yarn I’m using to make this sweater (Knit Picks Wool of the Andes) – probably because I’m used to Cascade 220 and Peruvian highland wool feels incredibly soft in comparison. Also, it’s very affordable. The pattern, however, is another story. There are a lot of errors considering it’s such a basic design. I’m only the fourth or fifth person on Ravelry to list this pattern as a project, so I’ll take good notes and list them on my page. That way I can help out anyone who tries it out after me.
Stay warm everyone! It’s supposed to be another frigid weekend!
