Didn’t finish a project in more than a year, and now I am already back with a second FO in the span of a few weeks! It’s a bloody miracle. While I knew going back for a graduate degree would be time consuming, I honestly didn’t think it would be this time consuming. It will be over soon, though, so I just need to keep moving forward and being patient with the lack of creative time.
I started this project all the way back in 2016 during the Olympics. It was my Ravellenics project that year and I clearly didn’t medal. I did enjoy the project, despite the lack of medals, so I was determined to finish it.
The pattern is the 3 Color Cashmere Cowl by Joji Locatelli. I had purchased the yarn as a kit during the LA Yarn Crawl that year, so while the colors of the Lux Adorna Knits 100% Cashmere Sport Weight is beautiful, I get zero credit for matching the colors. The colors included were Jackolope, Bikini and Spring.
I used a US 5 size needle, and if I were to make another one I would go down a needle size for the ribbing. Here is what it looks like when flat. You can see how loose the ribbing is in the picture.
Joji’s patterns are a lot of fun to knit, so I highly recommend you attempt one yourself.
