Earlier this week on Twitter I bemoaned the fact that I botched the same tubular cast on five times in a row. And it’s a shame, too, because this particular yarn (I have learned) detests being ripped out and re-knit. But the sixth time I finally nailed it, and soldiered on with the cowl.
The yarn is Cascade Cloud 9 in color 111, “Lime Green.” A friend once mentioned that since I’m allergic to mohair (it gives me an itchy rash) I might be allergic to angora as well. I made a mental note to test a small angora project before sinking a lot of cash into an expensive angora yarn, and I happened to spot this yarn on sale.
This is a stitch pattern I spotted somewhere. Isn’t it great the way that it looks like a cable?
But it’s just a strange magical property of 4×4 rib, offset by 2 stitches every 7th row.
