FO: Gap-Tastic Cowl

On to the next finished object of the past week – my giant seed-stitch cowl.

Gap-Tastic Cowl

I had just under 2 1/2 skeins of the yarn left over from my much-beloved Nell cardigan, which was just the right yardage for this pattern. But when I got halfway finished, I decided it was large enough, and probably more wearable at that width (7.5″ wide instead of 15″), so I bound off. The only other modification I made was to use a provisional cast-on so that I could bind off that edge when done and have the two edges match in looks and amount of stretchiness.

Pattern: Gap-Tastic Cowl by Jen Geigley
Yarn: Cascade 128, “Sage”, about 1.3 skeins (around 166 yards)
Needles: US13/9mm

    Clever to do the provisional cast-on. Everyone likes matchy-matchy edges. It looks really good.

      Thanks! I’m not sure anyone would have noticed the matchy-matchy edges, but I was afraid the cast-on edge would be a lot tighter than the bind-off edge.

    Looks cozy! And now… what will you do with the rest of the leftover yarn?

    This is my favorite cowl (of yours) ever!

      You probably have some yarn in your stash that would work – only needs 150-160 yards of bulky yarn (or worsted, doubled). Oh yeah… there’s that k1, p1 issue. ;-D

    So pretty. Seed stitch is infinitely versatile.
