Machine Knit Cowl
So the other night we were all out for a family dinner, my niece gave her sister a birthday gift which was a knitted cowl. It was a very nice red knitted cowl - very simple for us MK'rs. I decided to throw one on my standard gauge knitting machine last night and use my garter carriage to knit it.
Here is how I did this one:
Using Knitking "Panache" cone yarn. I got about 9sts to the inch. (don't know the weight as the cone didn't say)
Pattern #539 on my KH-965i
I cast on with waste yarn, then knit 500 rows. After the last row was knit I picked up the cast on row and hung it on the working needles. I then knit tog. and cast off. I then lightly steamed it with my steamer.
I really like the cowl! It started snowing here in Montana minutes after I took the pictures so I guess I'll NEED to wear it soon!
