Seed Stitch Cowl & Headband
Well I managed to finish knitting the seed stitch cowl and headband. I can’t wait to share this with you. My model took some fantastic pictures. I know you will be pleased with your finished projects as well. I really hope you will share your pictures with us.
This project was a simple seed stitch cowl which I added an ear warmer headband to go with it. I have never knit anything with this stitch before, but I do believe it’s my new favorite. I’ve decided to make a new pattern using this stitch for my grand-kids, which I’ll share with you soon. It will be my first free pattern offer. So sign up for my newsletter to receive the free pattern.
What I learned from this project was how versatile the seed stitch is. I like the texture, it gives a rich feel to the fabric and is great for winter projects. I love how it doesn’t allow the cold air to penetrate. Please read my previous article on this KAL project if you too would like to try it.
I did use an alpaca blend for this project, it was the first time I worked with alpaca. So let me just say this, it has a soft luxurious feel and look to it, but it does shed a little. When I was knitting it up I became a little hairy. So, I would definitely keep a lint roller close at hand.
I want to thank Jane Cochran, from Ravelry for the beautiful cowl pattern Thirty-Eight, and also a thank you to Heather Feather from her Thrifty blog for the Cozy Pozy Ear Warmer pattern. I truly enjoyed making both of these projects and encourage you to follow both of these artist.
I will post our next KAL project the first week of November so make sure to check your email for your next shopping list. If you haven’t signed up for our newsletters please do so this is where you will get a head start on all our KAL information, before the article comes out. I will also be doing a give away soon so be on the lookout in upcoming newsletters for all the details.
