Because I have a purple striped cow ready and waiting for a graft before it is given as a gift, and because I need only one more cowl to make this a wonderful air of presents to give to my daughter in laws,
I started yet another small project.
I've been hesitant about knitting these colours together. It just didn't feel like it would work, but they do. The brown has the loveliest sheen of gold through it. It doesn't photograph at all well but in real life it is pretty darn stunning. I am very pleased.
As to being hesitant about the colours, silly me. I'm not sorry because I have them to gift this year so it is a win for me.
The pattern I am basing this one on is the same as for the purple cowl/scarf, from the Striped Cowl by Matilde Skår. I am using 3.5 mm needles so I cast on 20 fewer stitches than the pattern, but it looks great. Good dimensions and the fabric is just fine.
