View Full Version : Quickest Cowl ever

12-19-2009, 09:39 PM
My DD dug up a scarf I abandoned years ago and asked me to please make a cowl for her out of it, soooooo . . . in about 10 minutes I sewed a coupled of buttons on it and voila!! Glad it was so easy to make her happy :^) I can't even remember the name of the stitch I used.


Here's a close up of the stitch. If anyone can tell me what they think it is I would be happy to know, considering I wouldn't be able to duplicate it if I wanted to. :roflhard:


Yes, that is my barren Christmas tree in the background. We trim it tomorrow ;)

Yay! Isn't it fun to use your old knitting for something fabulous!

It looks like it could be seed stitch. Good job of recycling old knitting into some new and fashionable.

Thanks! I know its not seed stitch. Its stretchy and kinda looks like ribbing with a flourish. I realized I forgot to mention the yarn. Its Lion Brand Jiffy in El Paso colorway. I know this because there was a skein in the bottom of my knitting box and I had to break it open to bind off.

ETA - I figured out what I did. Here's the pattern: R1: yo, k2, pyo both k stitches, repeat; R2: P across. I guess its called bamboo stitch. But I kinda don't remember it being called that. I think I did it on smaller needles for the yarn.
