Finished Birthday Cowl

I have a photo heavy post to share today.  :-)   I finished the cowl (see THIS post) for our daughter's birthday, and took pictures of it before and after steam blocking:

Right off the CinDWood loom, and before blocking the cowl is about 6-1/4" wide and 22" long.

Here is a close up of the stitches before blocking (stitch sequence used is in the post highlighted above).

Once it was steam blocked, it measured just over 7" wide, and over 30" long!

Here is a close up of the stitches after blocking for comparison:

It works much better as an infinity scarf now that it's been blocked!

When Kelsey opened her gift, she was so pleased ... she said "I HOPED this is what it was".  YAY!  I have lots of the yarn leftover, so maybe Santa will bring her a matching hat.  ;-)

Thanks for stopping by today.
