I’m planning on putting this pattern up for pre-sale on Ravelry this afternoon:
I have a problem though, I can’t for the life of me name it! When I look at it I just see the colour (which I love) and want to call it ‘Study in Pink’. For Joe the folds on the hat remind him of the Shar-Pei dog!
Post your name suggestions below and everyone who posts a name suggestion will be entered into a random draw, you’ll have to be quick though as it’ll be up for today only. Who knows, perhaps the perfect name will come to me by this evening! The winner of the draw will be posted tomorrow and if you don’t win, I’ll also have a pre-order reduced price for the set.
This is set is knit using one of my new favourite yarns, Soft Donegal. I don’t normally like pale pink but the flecks of purple, blue and cream running thought it completely transform the colour from me and make it very wearable.
They are both knit using a slip stitch pattern that is fast to work but creates a wonderful textured surface that works really well with the tweedy yarn. The hat uses one of my favourite edges, a folded hem which is created seamlessly.
The cowl is knit in a large size, to create a length that works perfectly wrapped around your neck twice. I don’t think I’ll every knit a scarf again – a long cowl works so much better and won’t come unwrapped!
