5 days – 5 shawls 2022

🇬🇧 Since it wasn’t on Instagram this year, I missed the 5 shawls in 5 days challenge 2022. I wrote about that challenge last year already. You can find the details here.

The weather outside is still a bit moody. Therefore I decided that it’s not too late to still do my own 5 mini swatches in 5 days. After I knitted the Feste Cowl (Hanne Kær Pedersen) and The Shift (Andrea Mowry), I figured out for myself, that I actually like wearing small cowls in this in-between weather where it is . Therefore, I knitted five small cowl samples during this week instead of shawls. Four are knitted in the round, one is knitted flat and sewn. I used some contrast stripes to make the knitting direction more visible.

Top left: Poncho like cowl knitted in the round with three increase-tips, one at the front, one on each side, left and right in the back.

Top right: Knitted in the round cowl with one increase-tip at the front center.

Bottom left: Knitted in the round cowl with four invisible side increases and a front center tip.

Bottom middle: Knitted flat and sewn cowl with asymmetric stripes and center tip.

Bottom right: Knitted in the round cowl with symmetric in- and decreases to create a tube like cowl with center tip.

🇩🇪 Folgt bald.
