R網上我很喜歡的兩個作者合作的脖圍,算是另一種交換禮物的型態,

一人完成半,然後交換,讓朋友用另外一款線來完成另外一半;非常有趣!!

A few years ago Ysolda and Stephanie from Tiny Owl Knits teamed up with an idea for a partner project. The concept was to create a knitted version of "best friend necklaces". Remember those? You kept one half, and your BFF kept the other?

Introducing the BFF cowl! Interlocking links are knitted flat, then grafted together for all eternity.

How it works: You knit both links [one of Ysolda's, one of Stephanie's] in your color, your friend knits them in a different color, then you swap one of the links and presto! You're best knitty friends forever. Oh, you should also be available for late night rants and movie sessions too.

This project is perfect for swaps and for friends who've linked up across the globe because of knitting!

PATTERN NOTES
[Knitty's list of standard abbreviations and techniques can be found here.]

Each half of the cowl requires one skein. One cowl is made from two skeins. If you're making it all yourself, you'll need one skein of each color.

If you're working with a friend, both knitters should choose a color they love, and make one of each of the two links in their chosen color.

This project uses a provisional cast on. Use your preferred provisional cast on technique; directions for one technique may be found here.

This project uses grafting. Instructions for this technique may be found here.

DIRECTIONS

Stephanie's Link
Provisionally cast on 41 sts with waste yarn.

Join working yarn.
Knit 1 row.

Row 1 [WS]: Sl 3 wyif, work Cocoon Stitch over next 35 sts, p3.

Row 2 [RS]: Sl 3 wyib, work Cocoon Stitch over next 35 sts, k3.

Work as set until you have completed 12 full repeats of the Cocoon Stitch pattern.

Work Rows 1-11 of a 13th repeat.

Slip sts to a spare needle, a stitch holder or scrap yarn.

Ysolda's Link
Provisionally cast on 33 sts with waste yarn.

Join working yarn. Knit 1 row.

Row 1 [WS]: Sl 3 wyif, work Seedpod Pattern over next 27 sts, p3.

Row 2 [RS]: Sl 3 wyib, work Seedpod Pattern over next 27 sts, k3.

Work as set until you have completed 3 full repeats of the Seedpod Pattern.

Work Rows 1-47 of a 4th repeat.

Slip sts to a spare needle, a stitch holder or scrap yarn.

FINISHING
Meet up with your friend or send a package full of goodies and 1 of your freshly knit cowls by carrier pigeon, boat, owl, or other available mail service. Coordinate so that each of you end up with 1 of Ysolda's design and one of Stephanie's, in different colors.

Join the ends of first link as follows: un-do provisional cast on and slip resulting live sts onto needle; if necessary also return live sts from other end to needle. Graft ends together in pattern.

Join the ends of the second link in the same way, but before joining pass the end through the first link so that once the second is Kitchener stitched they cannot be un-linked. Do not forget to link them - seriously, Ysolda did it twice and that's a lot of precise Kitchener stitch to have to re-do -- oops!

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Stephanie Dosen is an American singer living at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. She designs knitwear under the name Tiny Owl Knits and her work has been featured in Inside Crochet, Vogue Knitting, and Interweave Knits. She is currently working on a new album, and book of everyday magical knits.

Ysolda Teague lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, and became a knitwear designer because one day in 2005 she stumbled across the Knitty submission page and thought "that seems doable". Her first pattern, Arisaig, was published that fall and she had no idea at the time how many knitters were out there or how much it would change her life. Now she designs full time, has self published 5 books and travels the world to get together with other knitters.

They're the kind of friends who decide on a whim to get together in Iceland for a photoshoot, without much of a plan, a tight deadline, and a firm belief that everything will work out. Thanks to a whole bunch of other wonderful friends that we never would have met without knitting, it did!
