I spent the last three days working on donation knitting, but today I need to share a cowl I finished over a week ago! I was just really slow taking pretty photos. This is my Estonian Medallion Lace Cowl.
This is some of my most recent vacation yarn from Colorado, from a local dyer called Herd of Cats. If I read the tag right, the base is Streets, and this might be the Champion Street colorway. Because it was only around 181 yards, I had to modify the pattern a little bit, just by casting on fewer stitches. Toward the end, I was afraid I was going to run out of yarn so I only did 2.5 repeats of the lace instead of three. (Probably could have done all three, though.)
Anyway, the important thing is that the yarn is delicious! It’s thick and squooshy and so soft that I really thought it had some cashmere or silk, but it’s all merino. I believe they sell under the name Road Trip Sock Yarn on Etsy, and this looks like what I had. But also, if you’re ever in Denver, stop by the LambShoppe and check out their yarns!
So pretty. I would feel really proud if I had made this and highly honoured to wear it. Beautiful 😎
Perfect yarn for such a pretty pattern!
That’s so pretty! It looks like it would be a quick knit, too.
It was! I spend so much time on socks and shawls these days that I forget how fast a worsted cowl can be.
Yup, worsted knitting goes so much faster when you’re not used to it!
Beautiful cowl! That’s going to be fun to wear this winter
Yes, assuming we ever get winter!
Oh my goodness yes. It’s supposed to be 92° today 🥵
Oh wow, that is gorgeous!
