I finally got my love and have worked out a hooking schedule. With my new plan in action, I was feeling crafty and inspired by Sara’s (sp) shared knowledge of the Sedge Stitch a la Lion Brand, and I’ve been itching to make another Mobius cowl since Mother’s was knitted, and despite using scraps, I am proud of the way that one turned out. Since it’s been in mom’s care, it has attained a softer touch. Isn’t that interesting? While I prefer a Mobius cowl of dimensions similar to mother’s versus this smaller version, this one, again, was made from partials skeins of the baby sport weight yarn and the Unknown Eyelash was on a cone, so you could actually make it wider and/or longer. I still like it andI am just too excited to have another FO.
The body worked up over an afternoon/evening; the border took a morning because I tried to do something different by slip stitching the back loop and front loops on each side, so I would not have to see the v’s from single crochet along the sides. That’s why you see that white line along the sides. I’ll admit: it looks a little less than Wow!, and I am almost convinced it is a design element. Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
You may purchase the pattern by following the link above. While I condone your profit from making this cowl, I do ask that you do not copy the pattern and disseminate among your friends, as I don’t think USD $2.50 is an exorbitant fee for a crochet pattern. As with all my patterns, if you maintain a presence on Ravelry.com, I would appreciate your linking to the pattern, so I can contact you and feature an image of your project with the pattern page.
