Are you ready for some knitting? It’s been a while, that’s for sure. It’s been such a while, in fact, that I don’t have stats on this particular item. I started on vacation back in August. And I finished it in early October.
It’s the Rio Calina Cowl by Cat Bordhi. It’s free and it’s fabulous and she released it at the same time as she let the world know that she would soon be dying. Tragic and sad, yes, but beautiful and self-less and inspiring, too. The picture above is the front.
And this picture is the back. Both are after it was blocked and sewn together obviously. And the sewing together is the only tricky part. Luckily for me I was able to FaceTime with Sean so he could show me how to do it. I’m still not quite sure how it worked, all I know is that it did and it came out great!
I even took a selfie to model it for you! Details are on my Ravelry page but I feel obliged to tell you that this is fast and fun and would make a wonderful gift if you’re a gift knitting type of person. And when you make it and gift it? Tell the person you give it to all about the brilliant Cat Bordhi.
