Modification Monday: Spring is Here! Cowl




Original Pattern: Susie's Reading Mitts

Knitter Extraordinaire: Elin (Ravelry Id)

Mods: Transformed the fingerless mitt pattern into a a cowl.  Project page with full details on how to make the cowl can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love the original pattern, because it is the perfect balance of the simple (lots of stockinette) and feminine detail (the eyelet and picot trim is so perfect). I'm not surprised at all that someone wanted to make a beautiful matching set out of this- that kind of prettiness begs to be near the face. And doesn't it look so perfect with the original Susie's Reading Mitts? I bet this set would be a perfect holiday gift.

That is such a great idea! The Reading mitts have been on my Rav favourites list for a while. I'll definitely bear this in mind for if I ever get round to making them!
