As I mentioned yesterday, I chose to knit a hat and cowl set for the Ravellenics. Last night I finished weaving the ends on the cowl and blocked it, ready for the photograph I took this morning.
The pattern I used is Eleanor Cowl by Audrey Knight. I chose this cowl not only because the pattern is beautiful, but also because it features a similar motif to the hat I made.
I didn't swatch for it, so I ended up decreasing needle sizes faster than called for by the pattern, until I got a fabric I was satisfied with. On the bind-off, upping the needle size was insufficient to make a top edge that easily passes over the head, so I ripped it out and used the same needle size for a Jenny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-off. That worked like a dream, so all that was left for yesterday was weaving ends and blocking.
