Update on the Zigzag

It survived the recent WIP/UFO review and in the last couple of weeks I’ve been making an effort to make progress with it … Here’s the latest status of the so-called Zigzag Cowl with only a few metres of yarn left to knit …

Being open-ended, it’s more a short scarf than a cowl. It’s almost 100 cm long, and – according to the pattern – was meant to have a buttonhole 6 cm from the end, in the middle of the row, but I didn’t like the look of it, so decided to continue without a hole and I will use a shawl pin to secure it instead, if needed.

Almost there … I’ll keep you posted!

Have you made good progress on a WIP this week? I’d love to hear all about it!

  1. It’s so pretty! I love the color scheme.

    I actually just posted a WIP update over on my blog today…it’s an afghan in a mostly pink and purple color scheme.

    Ooh, I like that! I have something similar bookmarked for variegated leftovers.
    This week I finished the endless garter square centre of a hap, perfect mindless knitting while sailing… not exciting but a big step forward 😳

      Thanks! I’m really quite taken by the simple technique of alternating the variegated yarns into stripes – it’s interesting to see the different combinations appear … Some I like, others not so much 😉 I’ll definitely use this idea again! Looking forward to seeing your hap 😀
