Knitting and Crochet

Birthday Cowl for My Mom

Moms cowl in progress

My mom’s birthday was last month, and I finally got around to photographing the finished product of her present.

The pattern is Jami Brynildson’s Fern Lace Cowl (Ravelry link), and I just love this pattern to bits. It’s interesting, but still easy enough to knit while watching TV that requires attention, and the finished product is just fantastic.

The finished product photos aren’t the best, since they were quickly snapped while visiting my parents (I was a bad blogger and forgot to model/photograph it before I gave it to her). The flat shot doesn’t really give you the best idea what it looks like on. As for the colors, the first photo is probably the most accurate – the close-up is a bit too yellow, and the full photo makes the purples look blue for whatever reason. The yarn is Plymouth Yarn’s Bazinga in colorway 01 – Lime Grape and I really loved working with it. It’s an acrylic blend too, so the cowl will be pretty easy care.

Overall I’m happy with it, and she loved it to pieces, so mission accomplished!

    I really want to start figuring out new stitches and patterns. I usually turn to knitting while I’m watching tv and I just start making the same old easy scarf every time haha

      Seriously, I encourage you to try! The more you do it, the easier it gets, and everything is really just a variation of knit and purl, and if you ever want anyone to show you, you know where to find me!
