Project

soft gray rope cowl

What are you most proud of? that i didnt screw up the unravelling too much, considering i read how to do it AFTER i did it-and the yarn is so well suited to this pattern,! What advice would you give someone starting this project? the pattern takes some trial and error to understand, this is my 2nd attempt and it went smoother, so i suggest a test run with a sample yarn until you figure out how to knit it- as for repurposing old knitted items into yarn, do a search and find a tutorial on it, probably better than trrial and error!!

steelelady answered:
thanks, i wasnt sure until i finally got the whole thing done and around my neck, just how soft it is, its getting colder here now, might have to put it to use soon!!
fingerfun asked:
I love your cowl scarf. Admire your repurposing. Love the flecky marl to the yarn. Brava!
steelelady answered:
thank you! the skirt has been in the back of the closet fo a couple years, i didnt want to give it away because it was so soft & textured! i guess it was there waiting for me to take it apart and reuse it-a bit of work but worth it!!
