I love it! When I first thought about combining all the skeins together to knit a cowl, I was expecting the colors to clash a little, but as it turns out, the colors couldn’t be better suited for each other. And as chance would have it, I had the perfect buttons on hand for the project: the sheep horn buttons I got from Rhinebeck. I love the natural color of the buttons against all the wild colors of the cowl.
Best part is that I have enough yarn left over to make another cowl, maybe even two. But just to keep things interesting, I might knit them up with slightly different construction. Ideas are a-brewing in this knitter’s noggin. It feels mighty good to be back to knitting.
Project DetailsPattern: My own. Knit flat in garter stitch, alternating skeins, adding button holes where I thought appropriate. Yarn: My own handspun from Ashland Merino Top in a variety of colors. Needles: US 9
