I'm so completely consumed by my dream to combine the Somewhat Cowl and the Vogue Ribbed Minidress that I can't clear my head enough to work out the details to my satisfaction. Add to that my intermediate beginner status and I admit my goal might be out of range for me given my skill level. Nevertheless, I am forging on and I'm hoping that you could help me!
My vision is to make the cowl portion of the Somewhat Cowl and the skirt portion of the Vogue Ribbed Minidress and connect them by means of the Minidress waistband.
The gauge for the Somewhat Cowl is 24 sts + 32 rows = 4 inches.
The gauge for the Vogue Ribbed Minidress is 24 sts + 28 rows = 4 inches.
I am using is King Cole Big Value DK in a fabulous purple tweed (#162 "Heather")
and I got gauge for the Minidress using 5.5mm needles. I'm planning on casting on for the Cowl portion on 5.0mm's.
Given all this info, would you say that I should cast on or slow down? Is there anything I haven't considered? Any success stories/horror stories to share? I'm all ears!
Here is my crafty inspiration...thanks fellow Craftsters!!
