I have recently become smitten with Cat Bordhi's Moebius in the "Treasury of Magical Knitting" book. I love the cast on and I have already completed two of the "cowls" from her website. This one was cast on with the intentions of being given to one person but upon completion, it decidedly had to go live with MWK's very own, ETRamblings. Beth (ETRamblings), Dawn (DawnMo67) & I went to the Friday Night KTog in West Dundee, IL at The Gifted Purl last night and I finally finished casting off there. (I even got to meet TWO MORE people from MenWhoKnit! We are everywhere!!) Honestly, I did not expect such a generous shawl and was a bit surprised! But once the ladies got their hands on it and showed me how it could be worn, all was well in the world of handknitted fashions!
I used Ironstone Yarns "Island Cotton" (69% Cotton, 31% Rayon: 8 oz = 150 yds) in Royal Purple on US Size 11 needles and casted on 144 stitches using the Moebius Cast On. This used just over 3 hanks.
