I've made this cowl some time last year. I've been using it several times, since it's gotten so cold.
This photo shows the colors wonderfully (and I just plain like it).
I like knitting brioche stitch.It's very stretchy. I can wind the cowl around my neck three times, but then I can't move my head anymore. It rests like a cabbage head on a plate, but it's toasty warm.
Brioche stitch has two sides to it, both look interesting to me.
The pattern for this cowl is from Purl Soho and it's free.
I used my handspun London Fog (fiber from FatCatKnits), and some handspun I dyed in the color Aqua some time ago (of which I have lots more).
The fiber is Falkland, the yarn is 3-ply.
I used 2 strands of London Fog, and one strand of Dove (semi solid colorway) to make this 3-ply yarn, that's why it's more on the grey side. I love this colorway, and it's a very popular one of Ginny's.
By the way, speaking of Ginny, and FatCatKnits, she is having a Fund raiser for her new studio. She worked from home for the longest time, and moved her work to a studio recently. There is still time to donate, if you are so inclined until January 26th, at midnight. I love her work, and like to support her. Plus depending on the size of your donation, there are wonderful gift packs to choose from.
