FO: Gris de lin

Week one of Pre-kindergarten is gone. As we start week two, the tears are still present. I know this will pass but is still painful to see my baby having trouble adjusting to the new environment. As with other difficult times, knitting is my therapy. Having an FO makes everything better. 

This cowl is, in my humble opinion, adorable!

Mods & sanity checks:
  • Cast on 84 stitches as I used DK instead of the recommended fingering weight yarn
  • Placed a stitch maker after every 12 stitches
  • Put in a safe line after every pattern repeat (12 rows)


I would knit this pattern again in a blink. Perhaps modify it to be an infinite scarf!?!


Have a great week. Keep your wool close; stop to smell the roses.

  2. So pretty! I started one of these cowls and ended up frogging it, it wasn't a good yarn match. This inspires me to make another one. Yours is lovely.

    1. Thanks Bethany! You should knit one; I would recommend a yarn with some "body" so it fits/drapes nicely on the neck.
