Finished Project: Stockholm Stole

Stockholm Scarf
Size made: 12" wide x 44" long
Craft: Knit 

Needle used: US 6 (4.0 mm); BO with US 7
Yarn used: Red Heart Yarn Ltd. Sport Solid
Color: Skipper Blue
Yardage Used: 450 Yards

Project Details and Feedback
Duration of Project: March 3rd to April 5th, 2011
 Modifications: Instead of joining this in the round I knitted this flat to make it into a shawl/stole instead of a big cowl scarf.
 Final Thoughts:  I really liked this pattern.  I would really like to re-do this with nicer yarn that has a lot more drape. For this I used donated yarn so it wasn't the ideal yarn to use but I really like the results anyway.  This is also pretty warm so I think that this cowl would definitely not work for Arizona! ha!


p.s. I want to thank mommy for taking the lovely pictures!
