Gloria version 2.0

(Truest color in this photo)

 

Pattern: Gloria Cowl (my own pattern here)

Yarn: Zen Yarn Garden Harmony Semi-Solid "Rambling Rose"

Needles: US 8

 

Modifications on my original pattern:

This time I started by casting on 85 stitches to make it a little cozier at the top.

 

To stop the tendency to fold at the switch from seed stitch to plain stockinette, I made a more gradual transition. After the three rounds of seed stitch I did

1 round of K2, P1

1 round of K3, P1

1 round of K4, P1

1 round of K5, P1

 

and then switched to plain stockinette stitch. I reversed the order for the opposite edge.

 

I also increased by 2 stitches every 5(ish) rounds.

I think if I were to do it again, I would increase twice that in the bottom half.
