Last year I went to the Bendigo Wool and Sheep Festival and purchased a skein of Dyed By Hand Yarns wool in a colour called Gorgon’s Head Coral and then found a pattern in Ravelry by Dominique Trad called Copilot.
I started this soon after and not long after I realised I had twisted the stitches when I joined it in the round. I decided to leave it this way and so far it hasn’t bothered me at all.
It was a good travelling project.
I enjoy wearing it and it is a great pop of colour in this dull winter weather,
and I find it quite comfortable worn doubled-up for extra warmth, particularly when I have my coat on.
One of the things I was hoping to improve with this pattern was my speed with YO, K2TOG in Continental Knitting (there is quite a lot of it) but so far I am still not quite there so will keep working on it.
The best thing about this pattern is that you can keep knitting until you no longer want to play “yarn chicken“, and this is the small amount of yarn I had left, very happy.
