Another Thermis

I’m actually only faking it in this picture – I hadn’t yet attached the buttons or woven (weaved?) in the ends.


For this one, I used twisted rib (ktbl, p) throughout. I like the look better, and I think it will help it stand up better when worn.

I also skipped the stretchy sewn bind-off. Instead, I simply bound off in pattern. I have a terrible time keeping stretchy sewn bind-offs from being too loose and ruffling. They work great when you’re binding off a pair of socks, because socks fit tightly with the negative ease. For a cowl? I don’t think stretchy sewn is the right choice.

Just my opinion, not a declaration of war or anything.
