My favourite things to make with yarn are hats and amigurumi. This project is me stepping out of my box! I enrolled in a Craftsy course, because I really want to make this entrelac cape. Of course I am still a beginner knitter, so I started with the first project.
I didn't have a plan for the project in the beginning, since I am not a big fan of the cowl/neckwarmer. One for warmth while I am out in -40 I am all over, but the trendy ones you see right now, are just not for me.
However, remember I said I am a beginner knitter? Well that means that I make mistakes. I knit the whole project too loose. Lesson learned for the cape. I will have to practice on a smaller project before moving on. The best part is...
I do love shawl/cowls/wraps (choose your descriptive name), and have been looking for a pattern for a while now. Two for one, a great learning project AND a surprise finish.
Here you can see the project laid flat. I single crocheted around the top edge to even it out. Overall it was a good experience and I was able to replay parts of the video that I forgot each time I started a light grey tier, (PUP, pick up and purl...for some reason this didn't stick from one day to the next).
