I keep up to date with what is happening with knitting through following knitters who post on social media especially Instagram and YouTube. @knitterista on Instagram posted a request for test knitters for her ‘the dudes cowl’ . I thought this would be a great knit opportunity as it meant learning new techniques especially that of herringbone stitch. luckily I was selected to participate and I have had an absolute delightful time knitting this cowl aided by a super soft yarn re:treat by West Yorkshire Spinners. It took two skeins and I had it knit fairly quickly. When this pattern is published I would add it to your go to cowl patterns as it’s looks and feels fabulous!
