While waiting for yarn for a couple of sweaters to arrive (the first package arrived from Green Mountain Spinnery with Saturday’s mail) I knit up a quick little cowl pattern with Malabrigo Lace Baby Merino. Before you panic with thoughts of knitting a cowl forever with 30,000 stitches, while this cowl is knit with lace yarn, it’s held double, and worked with size 7 needles, so the knitting actually goes fairly quickly—much faster than a pair of socks.
The photo of the blocking cowl is horrible. Mostly it’s the color. The color in the picture is atrocious. It’s really quite pretty in real life. The color in real life is much closer to this small picture to the left. But, I’m showing you this horrible blocking photo, because I once again am in need of a pattern name. And though the color in the photo is awful, the stitch is plainly visible, which is the important part for this little exercise.
If you have an idea for the name for this pattern, please let me know what it is by leaving a comment to this post before midnight July 28, Pacific time. Whoever suggests the name I end up using will get a free copy of the pattern after it’s released.
