Knit, knit, knit and knit, that is all we are going to be doing. Today I bring to you the second installment of the Memole cowl.

Welcome! Today my husband has prepared his famous apple Tarte Tatin and I have some vanilla ice cream too. I know, those snacks are getting out of my hands but today I have a more of a sweet tooth. Should we have some tarte while Eva, the winner of the raffle, tells us about her experience. After that we can knit the cowl together. What do you think?

 


TODAY WE WILL HAVE A CUP OF TEA AND WE WILL KNIT WITH AITANA VILLA… EVA from @el_ovillo_original.

 

Eva wearing Memole Cowl

 

My name is Eva (@el_ovillo_original on Instagram)

I won the fantastic and very unique raffle organized by Aitana Villa on her Instagram profile @sugarwoolly. The prize was to design a cowl, together with Aitana, using a skein dyed by @encayarns, with the color of my choosing.

The process has been a rollercoaster of emotions, at a given point I was even nervous! But it has also been very easy. The fact that someone understands you so well even without knowing you is very difficult. But both of them delivered exactly what I had expected.

I simply adore the color of the skein. It is marvelous!

The cowl is amazing too! The hands of Aitana are pure gold. The design is very impressive, even if I was the one who chose the stitches the final result was just a very nice surprise. And, as I mentioned at the beginning, she has made the whole process very easy for me.

I am delighted to have participated in something so special. The whole thing has been a lot of fun for me.

For the name of the cowl I thought of the work Memole. When I was a kid I use to watch a cartoon, which had the same name. The main character, called Memole, had its hair of the same color as the yarn of the cowl.

 


 

 

SECOND INSTALLMENT

 

Today I present to you the second installment of the Memole cowl (you will find it after this small explanation). Remember that if you want the cowl to be amazing it is very important that you do the gauge swatch. HERE you can find the whole information about the gauge swatch, the materials you will need, the abbreviations, …

I would love to see your progress on Instagram. Share your photos with the hashtag #MemoleCowl #AitanaVillaDesigns @sugarwoolly, in this way everyone will be able to see the final cowl and knit one.
