The pattern is a free downloadable one, The Honey Cowl, written by Ann Maria for Madelinetosh. Madelinetosh have delectable, 'must have' yarns and patterns and this particular pattern really appealed to me.
It is knit on circular needles and has a four round pattern repeat - this makes it perfect knitting for TV watching, kids sports watching and 'knitting in Company' - no difficult pattern to memorise for those of us who aren't clever enough to knit, talk, and concentrate at the same time!
Even though I love Madelinetosh yarn, for this project I chose to use a yarn I had in my stash (yes I am good girl!) - Rowan Cashsoft DK. This yarn is soooo soft and for a fusspot like me very beautiful against your skin. It is 10% cashmere, 57% extra fine merino and 33% microfibre and knits up like a dream.
On this occasion I chose the short length for the cowl but instructions are also given for a longer version which I will be making for next winter. Big decision is - what colour to choose .....
A big 'thank you' to my sassy photographer Sonya, from Sago on Tuesdays, who indulged me.
Wow, who knew daylight could be so unforgiving. I know we are supposed to age gracefully but perhaps that should be 'graciously'! Starting to see the appeal in the old soft focus! Lol!!
Until next time, happy quilting, knitting, sewing, crafting ....
