It seems like everyone is making one of these, these days — and Liberty Wool is just such a perfect yarn for this simple-yet-colorful project! I’m a loose knitter, so I went down a needle size … I think I could have gone down one more, and still come out great. The finished fabric on my cowl is soft and drapey — I’ve seen others that were much more corrugated and stand-up-on-there-own-ish.
Each time the ribs swapped places, I knit the whole round — to avoid funny purl-bump color changes. I also stopped 12 rows early, most because I was running out of yarn … but it was also quite big enough. This project was a joy to knit.
