I’ve been bitten by the Indie Gift-A-Long bug! That combined with a request from my aunt for a cowl with buttons led me to knit Make Waffles. The pattern is a simple textured cowl in a bulky weight yarn. It went shockingly fast for a girl who generally knits socks on size 1 needles. (I used size 9 needles – can you believe it?!)


The yarn is Malabrigo Mecha, and it was really delightful to work with. It makes me want a bulky cowl of my very own, maybe with cables! It took me a few days to find the buttons, but I did and now it’s ready for gifting after a quick blocking.

Cranking out FOs in heavier weight yarns is much easier. 😉 Stay tuned for next week, when I hope to have another project to share.
