So I may have misspoke when I said that the Panguipulli was unusable. I wasn’t content to just let it sit unused in my knitting trunk, cast aside and ignored. So after trying many different patterns I thought, let’s go for something simple.
It doesn’t get much more simple than garter stitch. I figured at least this would let the vibrancy of the wool come through. The colours themselves would be the detail. I knit up the whole skein and then sewed the ends together to make a cowl/scarf item.
It’s not the most exciting piece, but it’s functional, warm and I no longer feel bad about leaving the yarn. Okay there’s still one skein in there, but that’s beside the point.
