Handspun Linen Stitch Cowl

OK, this one is beautiful. I am quite pleased with my result. I took my flower shop inferno 3 ply handspun and started a linen stitch cowl before Christmas. I didn’t get very far because linen stitch takes forever, and because other projects got in the way. But, I finished finally this week, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. The linen stitch is so perfect for such a colorful and variegated yarn, it makes each color fade into the next even more effectively than handspun just on its own.

And, because I’ve been talking about the inside of the cowl this whole time, I am going to show that off too.

Just stunning and rich! I love it!

  1. Sooo much linen stitch. I’m glad you made it to the end. I’ve learned that one thing I just can’t handle very well is long stretches of tiny, repetitive patterns. Drives me up the wall.

    • I think what saves me is the ability to put it down and work on other things, and only pick it up when I need truly mindless knitting.

      • No kidding.

        For me, that sort of thing falls into the unhappy region where I have to pay *some* attention to it or I mess up the pattern. Not truly mindless. And soooo booooring.

  2. Wow – that came out just beautifully. I did an endless linen stitch scarf last spring/summer as well, and wile I love it, I vowed not to it again any time soon. 🙂 But now that I see it in these pretty colors, I think I might do a variegated one if I ever do it again. Really nice!
