Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo HeartStrings #A9BG Cowl Dickey Link to website or photo www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/a9bg.shtm What are you most proud of? Knitted in-the-round, this seamless one-piece garment works up quickly. You'll start with larger needles than normal to achieve the softly draping outer portion of the easy 2-round herringbone lace stitch collar. The lace then decreases into a softly-ribbed inner collar on smaller needles. From there, a bit of short row shaping will raise the back neckline for a comfortable fit before proceeding again in-the-round to complete the short raglan yoke. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Treat yourself to a luxury yarn like Buffalo Gold Earth Lite (takes just one skein!); the bison down will feel like heavenly decadence. One size fits all. 200 yards sport weight yarn. Suggested needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm for outer collar; US 6 / 4 mm for inner collar and raglan yoke. 5 stitches/inch using smaller needle. Written stitch instructions (no charts).

What you will need

  • Buffalo Gold Premium Fibers "Earth Lite" 90% Bison
  • 10% Nylon
  • 1 skein / 200 yards.
