First Cowl Ever!

jenjoycedesign©malabrigo cowlHere is a first ! My first cowl ever knit, and I’m rather sure it’s actually a design in-process.  I’ve held three strands of murky shades of Malabrigo Sock yarn together and knit them using US 11 – 8mm needles to make this cowl , um, kitchener grafted at the two ends which disguised itself rather nicely I might say.   It is a very simple lace repeat design , though difficult to see, yarn is plush & thick with two lace pattern repeats.  The colors’ variegations play with each other nicely making a very subtle earthy overall, but with specks of clearer colors jump out …

and oh , I didn’t use circulars for it, but my mother’s retro blue anodized aluminum straights and let me tell you, it was nice to hike along knitting with straight needles for a change.

Another knitted gift done & dusted !
