Pringle Autumn/Winter 2007

I have this on my projects list from Pringle's Fall line. I like how it simplifies the top of a coat and lets you hide your nose against the cold. My ideal would be to find a blue coat and knit a matching blue topper in wool mixed with silk.

I have to go pick out a coat and DO this. Love it. So NOT a poncho.

Let's give it a name. A neck-cho. A nacho poncho!

Well, let's not give it a name.

Wow -- Pringle was unknown to me. Very cool stuff. Much better than one of those little neck cozy things that squish down and do absoutely no good.

Neat blog!

Remember when I tried something similar to this? It was my first completed knitted project. I made it to wear over sweaters. What was the book? You gave it to me....ack. I still love it, but I did not size it well -- it does not lay like I would like. I think one for over the top of a coat would be outstanding -- to keep the wind off the part of your neck that the scarf never covers.

That was Sally Melville's "Book 1, The Knit Stitch", such a great book. I think we should try this one with separate cables of different lengths. We'll use seaming stitches and blocking to coax it into shape.
