I made two more of these. In case you missed the pattern link in my the posting of my first one, here it is (it's a free pattern). These are going to be for my sister and mother-in-law.
I used Patons SWS. The first one is in Natural Berry, and the second one is in Natural Denim. I'll say that the yarn redeemed itself in my eyes. I didn't like the feel of the colorway I used before (Natural Snow). It was really rough. For some reason, these two colors were much softer and, thus, more pleasurable to knit with.
I did a little bit of modifying to this pattern. First, I knit seven pattern repeats. Then, I only knit seven rows of SS and ended with six garter rows and bound off. I think that doing the 5" of SS makes the cozy too cumbersome to put on. Just my opinion.
Thanks for looking! :muah:
