Late one Christmas Eve, a sweet little knitter named Kristin had the idea to knit her heart out in hopes to complete an addition to a gift. Aunt Jenny's bag was already packed but she wanted to add something more; a scarf or cowl or something like that.
She grabbed some Debbie Bliss Donegal Tweed, DK weight, and used a pair of size 6 circs to cast on 35 stitches at 10:00pm.
Since she is obsessed with the tubular cast on, that is the one she chose. This took a minute, but was well worth it for the end result.
She knit in seed stitch until there was just about 3 yards of yarn left and bound off loosely around 12:45. With the tail she sewed up the sides, leaving a few inches of gap, tied off the yarn and added a button.
And there was a beautiful cowl that took three hours to complete.
It's warm, washable, and will match anything.
It's squishy and light and will not fall off if she needs to move around.
It's snug and gentle and will "updo" any top she puts on.
Merry Christmas Aunt Jen!
