Just a quick one tonight to show off a couple of cowls. The first one I finished several days ago and just got around to blocking.
The pattern is Flor de Maio and it was designed for Classic Elite Yarns Chateau, a baby alpaca yarn, and that’s what I used. It’s one of my favorite yarns, so soft and decadent, with great drape.
It lost a bit of the thick density with blocking, so I kind of wish I hadn’t blocked, but it did open up the pretty diamond lace pattern nicely. This one will be a gift.
The other one is made from some of my brand-new yarn from over the weekend, Cascade Yarns Spuntaneous, and I’m kind of in love with it too.
It’s a delicious super bulky, soft like roving, softer than Rasta or Magnum but with that same wonderful chunky texture.
The pattern is A New Years Cowl and it was quick. Like, couple of hours quick.
I mean, come on. This is just so perfect. I love it so much I might have to make another one. And another, and another!
Happy knitting, friends!
