A lovely cowl I finished yesterday, since casting on New Years Eve.
It is a pattern I named “Altitude Lace Cowl” (photographed below on sassafras walking stick my brother gave me on my birthday decades ago).
It is beautiful and I used especially for a present to myself in very plush & spendy Madelinetosh Pashmina yarn, 100g skein with oodles of yards, in the color “wellwater”
This sample is the biggest of the sizes, at 9 repeats (40″ circumference x 11″ wide). As it is my birthday, I’d like to give-away this pattern TODAY thru Ravelry only, to all who do the following ;
((text removed as give-away is over))
Thank you! And now I’ll go on about my next birthday event by taking a walk in the woods with Emma, along our knitting trail, while casting on another of these quick-knit lacey neck cozies.
Miss Fifteen modelling my very recent “Altitude Cowl”
My nieces and I had a double-design photo shoot in St.Helena last week in the scorching heat of a late July morning, for Altitude Cowl and for Calidez. At ten o’clock the mercury rising up into the 80’s, proves that my nieces are really quite good at the modelling thing after all.
So Altitude Cowl was designed to be a very easy knit for beginner knitter , for teaching in my Knitting @ Altitude group that is soon-to-be-forming (so excited!). Actually , this one is first in a series of easy cowls, this one being ‘twists’. The next will add to make the pattern my first official e-book, and it will grow from there to hopefully a handful of easy cowls.
Please see details of the pattern page on this site HERE , or on Ravelry HERE
It can be worn tossed on over the head, or folded and pinned. It is a very showy deeply textured cowl that is ‘all about the yarn and the twists’ and I hope you try it!
Now please go see Miss Twelve in Calidez…
