A Grey Loop

It feels like such a long time ago that I knitted this for my daughter.

004

In fact it was only in March, but time has been a funny thing this past year, seemingly standing still and thundering past simultaneously.

Recently time and life have been falling back into a more familiar and comforting rhythm. I've decided to take full advantage of this by catching up on things I'd let slide...this dusty blog being one of them.

So, without further waffle here is how I knitted Poppy's Grey Loop...I wouldn't dare call it a pattern, It's just a bare bones 'how to'

I hope it suffices...

Yarn Used : Rowan RYC Extra fine Merino 3 balls (I had some leftovers)
Needles : 5mm - US 8 Circular (I used an 80cm)
Tension : I just liked the fabric and kept knitting :)

Cast on 210 sts, pm and join in the round. (Please double check for twists, I had to re-do this a couple of times whimper)

Work a few rounds in garter stitch (to do this in the round - knit 1 round to marker then purl 1 round to marker, and so on...)

I worked 4 rounds and it does flip...which isn't a problem for me on this piece like it would be on the hem of a cardigan.
However if you detest the flipping...I would suggest working more rounds and possibly using a smaller needle for this part only) I have no idea if this would eliminate the flip, but have a go and improve away...:)


Errata It is now glaringly obvious that I made a mistake of epic proportions on possibly the most simple 'pattern' ever written. That is quite a feat, and not one I'm proud of!
Sorry Knitters!
As I think I mentioned, I wrote this after the loop had been finished for a while, and looked at what I'd done, rather than referred to eloquent notes on scented paper (I'll post a pic of my 'notes' one day, for your amusement and general boggling)
Ok, if you follow the eyelet section as written above, you'll have a large hole at the marker. I'm guessing what happened was as I was knitting, my marker slipped under a YO and a 'deliberate' mistake was born.
Some people on Ravelry have just worked either row one or two exclusivley with fab results! If you prefer this to following the random methods of an idiot, It will look great :)...either way I hope you have a F/O you can love and snuggle in. xxx


Eyelet section

Rnd 1: Yo, K2tog to marker (remember to slip the marker)
Rnd 2: K2tog, Yo to marker

Repeat rounds 1 and 2 one more time, then work round 1 again.

Solid section

Work 5 rnds in stocking stitch (knit every round)
Purl 1 rnd
Work 5 rnds in st st.

Work eyelet section

Work solid section

Work eyelet section

Work garter stitch edging to match the beginning of the piece (remembering to change needle size if you did that initially)

Cast/Bind off loosely

Block and enjoy!

Here it is looped around 3 times.

  2. Really lovely ! - I love the drape of the yarn and colour :)

  3. Lovely cowl!! The combination of stitch, colour and yarn choice make it a classic piece. In fact, it could have been included in the Vogue Knitting mag, I think :)

  4. I love this! How long are the circular needles though? I have some 8g circulars, but they are only about 16". I am assuming this is much larger! I just want to make sure I am getting the right size.

  5. Great cowl! Thank you for sharing!

  6. Thanks for the pattern. I made Red Loop using cascade ultra pima. I only casted on 180 stitches and had just enough yarn. No rolly edge and it drapes beautifully.

  7. The pattern is so simple yet elegant. It would compliment if the color has some alter color in it like white and black.

  12. I love this cowl and I followed the ravelry link for errata. I am not sure I see the correction? I just knitted up the row two of the first eyelet pattern and am not sure what to do next...

  15. Hi, I am a little confused what to do for the eyelet section to avoid the hole near the marker. Can someone please clarify?

    1. I haven't found any clarification yet. Did you figure it out? I'm not experienced enough to modify.

    2. I believe she writes that you should only work row one OR row two five times as opposed to switching between the two of them as it's written.

  16. what was the diameter of the finished project? i'm not sure why but i'm almost half way through and mine seems much smaller than the pictures and i'm using the same weight yarn and everything...

    ReplyDelete
  17. This is so nice! I'm sure going to make it. Thanks very much.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Just got through with my Loop. Love it. Used the exact yarn stated. Still need to block and am hoping this takes the curling out some. Next time may add a stockinette row or 2 after the Garter row and before the garter row on the finishing side. Maybe this will help. love the look and will be doing more of these for gifts.

  19. How many stitches do I cast on if I want a single wrap cowl? I want to make this for someone who can't wear scarves that hang down due to her work. Spring is coming and I like the lightness of this pattern. Thank you

    1. I would use 16 in cir needles and quarter the pattern ensuring an even number of sts. I only consider myself an intermediate knitter though. So this suggestion may be way off. Good luck! Hopefully we'll hear from Helen soon :)

  21. Thank you for the pattern, but now that you have discovered a mistake, may I suggest that you rewrite your directions in a succinct and correct method and make the ravelry link to the amended ones?

    ReplyDelete
  22. i want to knit this ... agree with crzyknit ... thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I can't believe how rude some people can be. She is giving you this pattern for free. How then can you turn around and criticize the way she writes her pattern. I certainly hope that you are succinct and correct in everything you do in life.
