Technically, the designer is calling this a snood, but really it is a cowl. I am lovin it no matter the terminology.
It starts with a provisional cast on. Donna Smith gives directions on how to achieve this, but me being a creature of habit, I am using my ole stand-by crochet chain with a non-smooth yarn, I still have some white dish cloth cotton left from years back.
Recently on a the Knitmore Girls podcast, Jasmin gave a great hint for using the crochet cotton for doilies, Aunt Lydias. I am going to pick me up some of it, because it would be even smoother and easier to pick out when I get to the end.
Last week, I discovered that I am not able to count to two and four in public. I ended up ripping back my cowl a bit to where I messed it up. But luckily, the chart is easy to read my knitting and I had it back on track pretty quickly and moving on.
And now on to Chart 2 with the next color way, an equally nice chart!
