I finished knitting the mitts and had plenty of yarn left over, so went on and knit a cowl. I prefer a cowl to a scarf, because you don’t have the long ends flopping all over. Sometimes a scarf is the right thing, but a cowl tucks into your coat and covers your neck and that’s it.
The brighter green is the true color–I don’t know why the close-ups are washing out.
I was so happy with the green cowl, that I scoured etsy looking for special yarn. I found this art yarn, and thought it would be just the thing.
Aren’t the color changes wonderful?
The seller recommended using size 17 needles, but the largest I have are 11s, so I went with that.
The cowl is a little on the bulky side, but it works.
And isn’t it so, so pretty?
