I have already mentioned how much I likeVickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn by Caron! The perfect roving that mix acrylic and wool and enhance the stitches. The color pallete is perfect! And the price is spectacular!
I started to swatch with different colors, looking for an elegant curvy horizontal shape and the Aimée Cowl came up! I love the way that the stitch motif creates volumes and depressions that simulate cables! And the I-cord Finishing puts everything pretty well together! I hope that you appreciate this fast knitting project!
Details about the project:
The version in Portuguese is by Maria Leticia Cinto, a generous and very talented friend!
Approximately 456 yds / 418m of worsted yarn or 3 balls of Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) (3oz/85g – 167 yds/153m). Sample in Taupe(ish) / 0011
24 stitches and 28 rows in 4”x4” in stockinette stitch
US 7 / 4,5mm straight or circular or needle to match the gauge
Waste yarn in contrasting color and tapestry needle
Height (widest part): 9 ½”
The project starts with a provisional cast-on, knitted straight and sewn at the end.
Slip the first stitch from every row. This will make easier to pick up stitches for the I-cord finishing at both sides of Aimée Cowl.
The last row must to be the RS 27th of the chart.
After sewing, there’s an I-Cord finishing at both sides of the circumference.
The blocking is optional (the sample wasn’t blocked).
