Knitting a Spring Cowl using the Eyelet Moss Stitch

Hello friends,


I have just started knitting a light cowl for the spring.  I am using the eyelet moss stitch pattern that I found on the Knitting Galore blog.  There are tons of great stitches on this blog it is like a stitch dictionary.  This stitch stood out to me because it looked like it would be light and airy for spring’s warmer temperatures.

 I have also made some progress on my baby blanket that I have been knitting mostly while I was finishing up the second season of House of Cards.   It is getting much longer now I think I have to knit double the amount you see in the photo to complete the blanket.


I hope you are all are having a great Friday and have a good weekend!
Take care,
Lisa

    1. Thank you Linda! I like the bright blue myself. I decided on a brighter color to welcome spring because this past winter I have been knitting mostly in black and grays.
      Have a great day!

  3. The spring cowl is going to be great! It shouldn't take too long to finish up with the larger needles. Nice progress on your baby blanket. I'll have to check out the link as I love looking at new stitches. I just picked up a book at the thrift store that has over 100 stitch patterns in it! The photos are B&W, but fairly clear. Have a great weekend Lisa! Wendy x

  5. Thanks for your comment Lisa. I just had to pop in to visit. The baby blanket is going to be dreamy and the cowl is looking good. I always have a few projects going at once, just not disciplined enough I guess :)

    Have a great weekend!
