Sallah Cowl

Sallah Cowl
Pattern: Sallah Cowl by Bristol Ivy
Yarn: Leading Men Fiber Arts Spotlight in Pipeline, .73 skeins
Needles: US 5 and US 10
Date started: April 17, 2014
Date completed: April 27, 2014

I had to knit this yarn up during the playoffs since it’s in Blackhawks colors.

This was a simple but interesting knit. Two needle sizes are used, alternating rows. This was the first project I have done in which my new interchangeable needle set came in handy. I put a size 5 tip on one end and a size 10 tip on the other end so I wouldn’t have to change needles every other row. It was great! The other great thing about the interchangeable set is that I was using the size 10 tips on another project, but I was able to take it off and put one of the end things on that cable so I could use the tip on this project. Perfect! How did I not get interchangeable needles a long time ago?

Now for the use of stash update. I bought this yarn at YarnCon earlier this month, so it was new yarn. The pattern is available for free on Knitty.com, so I didn’t already own the pattern. I used 292 yards of this yarn, so I have now knit 88.5% of the yardage I have purchased so far this year.

So now I’ve finished both of my playoff projects, and tonight is the last night of the first round. I even made a hat in between! I will be working on my Cowl Neck Vest through the rest of the playoffs.
