My first pattern, the Dungarees cowl, is now available for download!
(I'm trying to find a balance here between giddy euphoria and cool professionalism. I may be failing.)
Yarn: Approximately 225yds sport weight, such as madelinetosh Pashmina
Needles: US size 5, 16" circular or DPNs
Gauge: 6st/in in seed stitch; gauge is not essential
Sportweight yarn makes this a light cowl for breezy spring days. madelinetosh pashmina has a lovely sheen, and the cashmere makes it soft enough to wear close to the skin.
In contrast to the soft, light feel of this cowl, I was actually inspired by a pair of jeans--my favorite pair of Lucky brand jeans. The structure along the inseam led the dye to pool into gathers, and the crosshatching in the fabric is reflected in the knotted openwork section of the cowl.
This cowl is knit with two columns of stockinette stitch on either side, which provides just a hint of structure so the cowl isn't too loose-fitting.
Comments welcome, and enjoy!
(Yes, I will get this up on Ravelry as soon as I figure out how to go about doing that!)
