Cowl on the go

I started the cowl pullover that has a sleeve looking like a winkle shell. I had to start it something like 6 times, until I decided to smartly use markers. The wool I use is 70% polyamid and 30%mohair from a swiss brand. I will knit the jersey parts with my big-wool knitting machine.

I mostly knitted the interesting sleeve while breastfeeding or in the car (obviously I was not the one driving;)).I am looking forward to sew and cut the sleeve, but anxious it will not unravel.

Wow, I've wanted to see someone make this sweater for a long time! Yours looks real nice so far :)

This is definitely on my long-term to-do list. Please keep us posted here on your progress. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished garment!

You really managed to get some sense out of the instructions? If I follow the instructions I think I get 3 holes instead of 2 - so after I knitted from the pattern twice and found out what it was about, I made my own version. I haven't posted anything on it yet - maybe I will when it is done, and I'm sure it worked out with the sewing ;)

Looking forward to see your progress!

difficult to start, but stick to the instructions..I first thought they were wrong, I will make how-to in pictures in order to avoid you to also have to start 6 times as I did;)
