Hi Everyone! A few days ago a knitter, Kristen Schultze, emailed me a beautiful photo of a finished cowl she made using our very own mermaid cafe. I had to share the stunning creation with everyone! Take a peak below.
If you're interested in knitting this up, Kristen has shared her pattern, see below:
The cowl pattern:
I used No 17 (12mm) needles, the largest I had, and 4 skeins of the yarn.
I cast on 29 stitches.
Set-up row: knit 5, purl 1, knit 5, purl 1 knit 2, purl 1, knit 2,
purl 1, knit 5, purl 1, knit 5
Then you knit the stitches as they appear.
Every 10th or 12th row I cabled 3 stitches over 2 stitches in those
"inner" 5 knit-stitches sections (knit 5, purl 1, put 3 st on cable
needle in front of the work, knit 2 st, knit 3 st. from cable needle,
purl 1, knit 2, purl 1, knit 2, purl 1, do the cabling again, purl 1,
I crocheted the buttons, I found the pattern somewhere on ravelry, and
the buttonholes are just crochet chain stitches.
