1 day + 1 7mm circ + 50g Handspun angora = …

I had 2 25g skeins of this gorgeous Angora and decided to make a quick scarf.  Being thick handspun it knits up really quickly on 7mm needles at 14st/10cm.

I looked up a couple of patterns and chose a simple twisted drop stitch.  3 rows in, there was a dropped stitch, frog , 3 rows later dropped stitch, frog 3 rows in ….  I have no idea what I was doing wrong but it wasn’t working.

I chose a different pattern and started again – same thing.  This bunny didn’t want to be a scarf.  So after 6 false starts I decided to forget patterns and just make a cowl.

Here is the result, I finished it the same day I started it.  I love quick patterns!  For anyone interested I wrote up the pattern .
