So I ordered my first ever two skeins from the skein queen colours as above.
I fell for both but the right hand one #160 will go to brighten up my new navy/white map coat for winter so I bought some navy katia merino baby 4 ply in navy from Masons in Abingdon and set to starting a cowl.
Then you simply work double crochets into a group- 6-7 in this case- of loops as you take them off the knitting needle again. A recently crocheted off row looks like the top row in this photo below:
I have decided on 3 rows broom stick with Koigu then 2 rows half treble (UK terms) with the navy merino. Using a 3.5mm hook. It's just so pretty isn't it? The colours are amazing, marvellous.
But so far am very pleased with the results visually and it is also sublimely soft! RESULT.
