Finished: Cocoon Me Cowl

To continue the sagas "Riikka makes Christams gifts from 2011" and "Riikka makes cowls", here is what I made for my sister in law.

Pattern: Cocoon Me Cowl & Shawlette
Yarn: Abuelita Yarns Merino Silk colorway 6845

Why I made this: Well, as said above, this is part of the knitting gift cards Christmas gifts I gave my brothers and sisters families in 2011. This is the last one I had to do for my brothers family and they all got some kind of scarfs or cowls. Fancy that.

This is the right side of the cowl.

What I liked in this project: I absolutely loved the pattern! it was simple but still produced a beautiful structure, a structure unlike anything I had seen before. I'm rahter determined to do something for myself with the same pattern set.

What I didn't like in this project: Guessing how wide I needed to make it. I was terribly horrified that circumference would be horribly of of what I what I wanted it to be.

And this is the back side, which is also pretty damn nice to look at.

What I learned:
Once again more about what kind of sturctures you can make without huge trickery. 

Was I happy with the end result: Yes. The cowl is beautiful from both sides and I think it's just the right length. Edit 15.2.: I gave the cowl to my sister in law last weekend and you should have seen the smile on her face. She absolutely loved it!

Tein kälylleni toiveesta lahjaksi rinkulahuivin, johon valikoitui malliksi tämä ihastuttavan kolmiulotteinen palluraohje ja langaksi ihanan pehmeä silkki-merinovilla. Huivissa sekä oikea että nurja puoli on todella ihana ja valmiista huivista pidimme sekä minä että käly erittäin paljon.
