Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Fiber Arts–Day 39

Went back to the 50 garter stitch gifts to knit book for this cowl. It’s the double stitch cowl. In the book, it’s shown in two different colors so I used my new 100% alpaca yarn in ecru and fawn. While the fawn part is garter stitch, the ecru is in a simple 8 row lace pattern. The lace pattern requires double yarn overs, SSK, knit 2 together, and some twisted knit stitches. Not exactly garter stitch but all of the special stitches were well explained so an adventurous beginner knitter would do just fine.

You’ll see this cowl again tomorrow along with the lace ecru scarf from several days ago. They’re going into the dye pot!
