My Jindabyne Cowl by Michelle Johnston in my last WIP Post is now complete! What a fun knit this was. It is made up of very easy stitches, but changes up so much that you only have to memorize two rows. I just added stitch markers before each stitch change and away I went. This is the perfect project to be able to pick up and put down and always remember where you are.
I didn’t get fantastic pictures because it’s kinda hard to take pictures of myself while wearing it! But I did snap enough to show it off to you!
I chose brown wooden buttons to give it a traditional and timeless appeal. I love how the Berroco Vintage yarn draped for this project. It’s so soft and warm and a total dream to work with. Below is another shot with the hat the I made to match!
The hat is made with wool ease. It’s a simple K4P1 pattern that I did. I don’t have a pattern for it, I kinda winged it with inspiration from the Maggie Hat. I also had my first try at embroidery with the snowflakes. I used the same blue Berroco yarn from my cowl to embroider the snowflakes. I don’t think they came out half bad.
Together they are an awesome set! But I probably should have thrown on some make-up for my photo shoot! LOL! I have a few other projects in queue, but after those, I am going to make some mittens to match. I purchased some smaller wooden buttons to make fancy cuffs and figured I could embroider more snowflakes for fun. What are you working on?
