I cast on a new waffle cowl on New Years Eve - there’s something quite satisfying starting the new year with a new project.
We popped to Whitstable for our last beach walk for 2021 and I literally cast in 5 mins before we left. I do love some in car knitting whilst my husband drives!
I chose some 20g DK hand dye minis I had in my stash and I was drawn towards Love Hearts - my favourite colourway of 2021. Yarn: @myyarnplace DK 20g minis. Although it’s DK weight it feels a littler heavier and I cast on using 5mm Hiya Hiya 60cm circulars- my favourite needles right now.
Pattern: Waffle Cowl @garloedesign It’s a free pattern and only 4 row repeat so it’s easy to remember and it looks so good in the hand dye yarn. At the time of writing this I’ve almost finished it. I do love a quick satisfying knitting project.
If you fancy knitting one I cast on 101 stitches, the first stitch is knitted onto the right hand needle - the original first stitch is then pulled over this stitch - leaving 100 stitches and joined in the round. I did 19 pattern repeats on 5mm Hiya Hiya circulars 60cm and it’s a perfect fit! It’s going to be perfect popped over a thin jumper
Happy New Year - happy knitting
