#HKKALSummer Mykonos Wrap: Week 3

Welcome to week 3 of the #HKKALSummer! You’ve got your projects rolling now (missed it? Check out Mykonos Wrap week 1, and week 2) so now we’re headed into the home stretch. Monday was Beach House, Tuesday Francisco Cowl, Wed was Bowdoin Hat, and today we’ve got more Mykonos Wrap from designer Laura Reinbach!

Week 3 Progress!

Week 3 Progress!

This week we are working on whittling down the length of the wrap.  We’ve got a lot to get through, but fortunately it is fairly quick knitting.

I’ve decided to play around with the panel/stripe sequence.  I am going to start my garter and lace sections wider at the ends and narrow them a little each time as I inch closer to the center.  Once I get past the center I will start to slowly widen them again.

The great thing about this pattern is that it is a blank canvas in which you can go wild with your spacing and sequencing.  Have fun!

#HKKALSummer Bowdoin Hat: Week 3

Welcome to week 3 of the #HKKALSummer! You’ve got your projects rolling now (missed it? Check out Bowdoin Hat week 1, and week 2) so now we’re headed into the home stretch. Monday was Beach House, Tuesday Francisco Cowl, and today we’re knitting more of Laura McDougal‘s Bowdoin Hat!

From designer Laura McDougal: We’re finished with the first two rounds of the stitch pattern repeats this week. Our Week 3 goal: finish the final 2 stitch pattern repeats!

This week, my Bowdoin came along with me to my Harry Potter Book Club! This is a group of awesome women who are re-reading the books together. We just finished Goblet of Fire and unsurprisingly: we had a LOT of feelings! Good thing we had beer and peanuts to sop up our Triwizard Tournament sorrows:

Bowdoin + Harry Potter

At the end of the week, you should be looking like this!

This week's goal!

HKKALSummer Francisco Cowl: Week 3

Welcome to week 3 of the #HKKALSummer! You’ve got your projects started (missed it? Check out Francisco Cowl week 1 and week 2)so now we’re headed into the home stretch. Yesterday we hit week 3 of Beach House, and today we’ve got more Francisco Cowl

Almost Finished!

Almost Finished!

For week 3 we’re getting done with almost all of the front shaping! You’ll be working through the decreasing of the sides until you get down to 44 sts. Or, in my case since I’m modifying my cowl to get a cozy winter cowl, 34 sts.

Just Keep Decreasing!

Since you’re just doing more of what you have been doing, it should be fairly straightforward. The finishing line is in sight now! Happy knitting everyone!
