Irish Mesh Cowl and gloves set

I knitted this cowl using an easy and fun (and free!) Irish Mesh Cowl  pattern from ravelry.

The yarn was bought in the charity shop ages ago, it was on a cone, quite fine (possibly intended for machine knitting).  I made gloves first, but there was a little bit left, so I decided to make a small scarf or a cowl. Irish Mesh stitch doesn’t require much yarn – I made more rows than the pattern suggested just to utilise the wool (I think I still have some of it left)

I had quite a lot of use of both items this winter.. The cowl pattern is quite versatile and can be used for a light summery version as well.

The dress I’m wearing on the pictures is made by me as well, and I will make a post about it soon (hopefully :)

Thanks for looking and have a nice day!

  1. looks great, also look forward to seeing details of the dress. I cant imagine knitting, my one and only scarf attempt, of a couple of years ago, is still not finished
