I’m showing off some progress shots of the braided cowl I’m working on in Scheepjes River Washed today.
It’s a fun project, I love the effect the slanted puff stitches create. Looking at it has an ASMR effect on me. It’s soothing and makes my scalp tingle a little. Do you know that feeling? It’s the best.
The stitch is a little bit tricky, it’s taken me quite a while to get it just right, with the puff stitch in just the right spot.
It’s also a challenge to make the design work with only three skeins of yarn. That puff stitch likes to eat the fibre. But, I’ll get there.
Plus, I keep changing my mind on the colour choices. I don’t know that 981 Colorado (the red with blue fuzz) is working how I want it to, so we’ll have to see how it all works out next week.
In the meantime, get the yarn at Wool Warehouse*, who ship globally.
Or you can go to Caro’s Atelier* in the Netherlands
