This is one of the first in my final push of Christmas knitting. I originally bought this yarn to make another Crofter’s Cowl for my academic daughter and then I gained three more children and as I knit for all my children I had to be creative with my pattern choices. I enjoyed knitting this, the lace is a bit strange at first but you get used to it and it was a very quick knit. Despite the laceyness of it, which I think is down to my yarn choice, it does make it extra thick and seems quite cosy. I hope the recipient enjoys it. I definitely recommend this pattern and will think of using it again in the future.
