Cast On: Windowpanes

If you have been following my blog this week, you might have keened that I have a case of Cast-On-Itis, lol. Next up is the project I had intended to be my Christmas Eve Cast On. But I didn’t get around to getting that organized thanks to germs and a lack of bandwidth. But I have sorted the cast on now!

I chose Windowpanes by Jill Ramos as its a worsted weight bandana style cowl. I pulled two coordinating skeins of worsted by K-Zip Knits from my stash. I started this once on US 9s and HATED the loose fabric. So I ripped back and started again on US 7s and that made me much happier.

I did have to use my plastic needles from WAY back when I started knitting. Not my ideal needles but I couldn’t lay hands on any other US 7s and I really just wanted to knit. The pattern is pretty straight forward and I have 7 inches of this pattern to do before moving on.

Happy Knitting!!

  1. Not being too experienced about changing needle sizes did you need to adjust pattern in any way? Sorry if that is stupid question. Happy knitting 🙂

    • Since a cowl doesn’t have to “fit”. I just played with what needles I had available to get the kind of fabric I wanted. 9s were too loose and 7 seemed to work. But I didn’t check to see if I’m on pattern gauge at all. Mostly just winging it
