Does anyone remember the Ribbed Lace Bolero (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181117.0)? I knitted it years ago, but it turned out way too big (GAUGE FAIL) so I tossed it in the closet. I found it again today and I literally could not frog it so I sewed the ends together into a tube and called it a cowl!

I thought the opening was kind of large so I crocheted a chain with hearts for a drawstring, so I can pull it in if I wanted to. Also... it just looks cuter Cheesy

So... Now I know if I fail at a project, I could just re-re-purpose it into something else, instead of accumulating more stuff in my closet Wink

It looks wonderful in your pictures. I wouldn't have guessed it had been anything else!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Nice! See, I would've just ripped it all out.  But you are so smart and clever for modifying it and saving yourself all the time and aggravation (not to mention honoring the time you put into it originally.) Go you!! Cheesy

Me, me, me! Yes, I remember your Ribbed Lace Bolero!
In fact I copied and pasted the pattern to my list of patterns to knit up at some point in the future. Where it still languishes since my discovery of instant gratification from knitting dishcloths with different patterns.
When my sister asked me to knit her a bolero it was one of the patterns I showed her. (She had a specific look and style that she wanted however - which did not translate into a Ribbed Lace Bolero.)
