Project

Color Stacked Cowl

What are you most proud of? Going with my real Magic Number instead of the instructors. "MY" magic number was 64 (1st time I measured was 66, but at the end of 2nd marker, I had 4 left over, so I removed the last 4-stitches in my provisional cast-on that I used. I was amazed how quickly I adapted to the changing colors and using the gold tapestry needle to manipulate the color stitches into the proper line. So cool! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always use YOUR magic number, not the instructor's because EVERY ball of yarn is different. Just follow what the pattern & instructor says. Remember, this pattern is 4 + 3, so when you get around to the beginning, don't start over with K2, P2. If you end with P1, then the next stitch on the other side of the marker is also P1, then you continue with K2, P2. It's not vertical ribbing, it's slanting lines (mine to the left).
