      Carol,
      The designer specified DPNs in her pattern instructions, but you can use regular straight needles.

      Thank you!

      Hi Colleen,

      They are lovely, aren’t they? I believe the designer found them while browsing Etsy. She didn’t specify in her pattern instructions.

      Thank you,

      Hi Vivian,

      SSK means to slip, slip, knit. It’s a common way to decrease two stitches while knitting. Slip two stitches knit wise onto the right needle, slip the left needle through both of the slipped stitches on the right needle, so that the left needle is in front and the right in back, as if you are going to knit. Pick up the yarn from behind the needles and knit the two stitches.

      Thank you,

      Hi Gloria,

      The designer specified double pointed needles for this, but no, they are not required.

      Thank you,

    The pattern looks lovely but it appears to me that there is only 1 buttonhole made in the pattern and I assume there should be three. How many stitches between the buttonholes? Perhaps I am reading the pattern incorrectly.

      Hi Myrna,

      For Row 13-26, the pattern states to repeat previous rows of the pattern, 1-12 and then 1-2. Row 1 is where the buttonhole is made, so when you get to that portion of the pattern, you’ll make the two other buttonholes.
      Does that help?

      Thanks,

    I’m not a baker, so my favorite type of cobbler is storebought frozen. Peach or cherry are my favorites, but Anne’s got me hankering for some of her blackberry.

    I love this pattern! My favorite cobbler is any of the berries such as boysenberry, blackberry, etc.

    Peach cobbler-haven’t had any for a very long time and it will be even longer before peach season makes it possible again. Thanks for the lovely cowl pattern.

    Never made a cobbler, but I do make a sweet potato pie that has a cobbler crumble top. The secret I’d orance extract… Tastes like candy!

  • I love an apple or peach cobbler, but we’re known to make a sour cherry cobbler quite often around here.

  • Well, I’m not confectioner, not at all but I’ve found an absolutely appealing Peach and Nectarine recipe for a really appetizing dessert plus a delicious throw and, speaking for myself, they are 2 MUST!
