basket weave cowl

With the cold weather here it was a good opportunity to attempt my first circular knitting project with a cowl.

http://antiochspiritwear.com/?option=com_k2 I have knitted a little in the past but I am certainly no expert. I found this free bucket weave cowl pattern found on Fringe Association so with a few you tube videos under my belt and a number of GoT episodes I completed this little beauty. The pattern calls for the wool to be held double which was also a first for me, but seriously easy.

I am yet to wash and block my scarf, or to understand the importance of blocking, something I intend to research over the next few days.

See below for progress photos, and my lovely son modelling my cowl for me.
