I prefer wool, cables and red. When I saw Johanna's cabled collar I absolutely wanted one for me.
Pattern: Palmikkokauluri by Kalastajan vaimo
Yarn: Drops Eskimo, red (008)
Needles: 9 mm CN
This was my first time knitting Eskimo. I fell in love with it right away. Although knitting cables with 9 mm needles was quite challenging every now and then. The collar took totally six skeins of yarn (à 50 g).
I've got only one problem: I don't have a jacket that fits with this! Shopping? I'm also thinking about knitting a cap, too. This one?
Can I sleep with this??
