I finished the Right Round Scarf on Monday (March 1st), and IMMEDIATELY launched into the worsted cowl version! Which I finished up Friday. While winters are generally pretty mild at my Mid-Atlantic location, some days are beastly between the bitter cold and the biting wind. No amount of scarf coverage will block the wind, it cuts right through multiple scarves/cowls. The Right Round Windscreen Cowl came out of walking between my gym’s main building and the auxiliary building (about a block) on a frigid windy day (back before my gym schedule got thrown off course).
The scarf: I used every color from my Love Lines kit. I have 65 g remaining, out of 280 g at the start. After a wash, it is 92″ (over 2 meters in length!!) long. It is nice to wrap around the neck. With all the extra length, I don’t have to worry about it coming upwrapped. I used a simple fair isle motif for the striping. Not difficult, but keeps it interesting.
The cowl: I am constructing my sample out of a bunch of stash. I didn’t have enough stash (besides sweater quantities) to make it out of all the same brand. At least it’s all the same fiber content; I used 100% wool. But if you don’t like/use/have/prefer wool, acrylic or cotton would also be adequate. Since I’m adding a LINER to the inside of the tube (for warmth and wind protection), the outer yarn is secondary for warmth. Cotton may be appropriate for the windscreen variety. I thought undoing the provisional and kitchnering the ends together was going to take FOREVER, it was about an hour. So not bad!!
Releases: I’m debating this as a bundle with 2 PDFs, instead of 1 PDF with multiple patterns. It would be the same price regardless. I need to spend 20 minutes, without interruption to make a chart. Date TBD. Likely late March Release.
