slippy cowl tells everyone that. That link takes you to the kit, bit just the pattern is free on Ravelry.
It is such a nice project too. I felt like I got a few rows done and I'm already done with the first slip stitch section. I liked having the slip section be surrounded by the contrast color, so I'm not exactly following the pattern. That isn't the only thing I have changed. The first garter stitch area is bigger and I also made the slipped section bigger by one repeat. I also changed row 1 of the slip pattern the first time I worked it so that I knit what would have been the slip stitches in the new color, and slipped what would have been the knit stitches.
I might also only do two slipped stitch sections instead of the three. That way I might be able to make 2 out of the yarn instead of one with odd leftovers. I will have to weigh the yarn once I'm done with the second section.
I forgot that I was soaking the big blue shawl, so I had to dry it out and re-wet it so it won't smell musty. I didn't totally forget about it.
Since I don't have any finished shawl to show you, I figured I would make up for it by posting some links to some pretty cool things.
