Felix The Cat Cowl

The Name

The primary yarn color was labeled Felix, hence the name Felix The Cat by Ann Bennett.

The Cowl

I did not have enough Lucky Lamb Yarn to make anything, so I searched my stash and found some complementary colors.

This project was a difficult start, as I kept making mistakes and could not decided how to proceed: provisional cast on or in-the-round? I finally chose in-the-round, but ended up using the cable length (20 or 24-inch; pretty sure it is the 20-inch) that is difficult to maneuver.

Once I decided on a knit method, I had to decide when to stop; despite my desire to use all the yarn so there would be no leftovers.

The only other critical mistake was in design: my garter edges keep folding in on themselves; I think that is an issue between garter and stockinette transition.
