I finally made a replacement for the Drop Stitch Cowl I left in a rental car in LA last winter!
I was very bummed when I got home and realized I left it in the trunk, but not bummed enough to reach out to the rental company to try and find it and have it shipped. Normally I’d spend the time trying to track down a beloved hand-knit item, but since it is such a fast project (1-2 hour knit), I figured I’d just make another instead of spending time on the phone.
I didn’t take any notes when I made it 3 years ago, and couldn’t remember which yarn I used. Earlier this year I was in Finch and found it: super soft Malabrigo Rasta. And then it sat in my yarn bin until last week when I pulled it out and knit it up!
I remembered running out of yarn last time, so I did fewer rows at the beginning and end, but otherwise followed the pattern.
I just dug up a photo from the original cowl, and think this is actually a slightly different colorway with more warm wine colored undertones rather than cool purple. Still a great replacement and will get a ton of wear.
