Knitting Completed – Cowl

It’s been raining on and off all day – well over two inches so far here in northern Vermont. An excellent day to sit and knit – and that’s what I’ve been doing, finishing the above cowl. It is destined to be gifted to one of the excellent nurses who cared for Mom in her last months. I don’t have the yarn info with me; if anyone cares enough to ask I’ll hunt down the label when I get home! The stitch pattern is from the Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible, one of my favorite sources to build designs. I found a repeat that would come out to the 120 stitches I wanted with eight repeats, and knit six vertical repeats, using 40 grams of the 55 I started with. It is as light and fluffy as it looks!
