I planned on making a Gruyere, leek and potato pie. This fell by the woolly wayside and I ended up with a knitted cowl instead! Fear not readers, domestic duties didn’t completely crash and burn. No KnitWit offspring were harmed in the making of this neck-warmer. No minors weren’t left to chew left-over super chunky – a hastily defrosted spag bol saved the day.
As promised, it was super-speedy and really straight forward to knit. Through no fault of the pattern (by Paulina Chin – Ravelry), mine has taken on the dual function of neck warmer and neck brace. I guess, technically, the super chunky wool I used should have been on 20mm (rather than 10mm) needles and so has left the wool rather stiff. Hey ho – it still looks great!
I have great plans for the left-over wool, that involves the purchase of two broom handles (more on that another time, mwaha ha ha ha!).
