I found this gorgeous cowl on Pinterest which led me to Anneliese’s beautiful blog www.aestheticnest.com. With all my web wanderings I can’t believe I’ve never come across her blog! Go check her out – she’s very talented.
Here is a link to her pattern. The light blue one took about 2.5 hours to make, the turquoise one about 1.5 hours. I just used yarn from my stash and that’s the great thing about this cowl – you can make it big or small depending on how much yarn you have. The pattern calls for a size N hook - I had a P on hand – no big deal! The stitch is very forgiving.
I used 2 1/2 50g balls of the Jaeger Baby Merino and 2 50g balls of the Zarella.
I love working with this twisted yarn. Aren’t the little bobbles charming?
I’ve made several so far – they’re quick, easy gifts to make. Also the stitch is simple enough that once you get the hang of it you don’t need the written pattern and can easily just carry the yarn and hook around with you to work on whenever you’ve got a free minute.
Have a lovely day!
