Victory Cowl


I finished this cowl over the weekend-it is SOFT!  The pattern is the Noble cowl and the yarn is Silky Merino by Malabrigo.  If you haven't had the pleasure to knit with this yarn you should!



Even though it is a single ply, the stitch definition is fantastic.  Silky Merino comes in an array of colors, so if you see it at a yarn shop pick up a skein or two and knit a little something decadent.


I managed to knit this cowl with one skein!  There was a yard or two left over so I got that giddy feeling of "is there enough yarn".  It makes my day to be slightly stressed about yardage.  Ravelry notes are here.

  1. Oh, so pretty. I have a single skein of silky merino waiting for the right project. I think this may be it. Of course, it is at home!

  2. It's gorgeous! I totally get that giddy feeling you talk about...and the thrill of success when you finish and have "just that much" yarn left over.

  4. It looks gorgeous and the yarn sounds fantastic I love yarn with some silk in it especially for scarves or cowls because it feels so good against your skin. One of my sisters-in-law taught me a completely new way to crochet this weekend that would work well with this kind of yarn...I can't wait to have a go.

  14. The pattern is perfectly spring-like! I was looking at a little knit tee just the other day that had leaves all over it. Very tempting this time of year!

  17. Wow! I love that green yarn. Beautiful cowl. (Wishing I could knit something like that up over a weekend :)

  18. I am doing that exact same cowl right now! Your green is gorgeous and is really making me want to hurry up and finish mine. It is my first lace project and am having a hard time understanding what to do when the pattern count goes up to 16 for awhile. Do I just knit past the end of the round stitch marker to finish the lace pattern and then not do as many knit stitches in the next row (so that I begin at the beginning of the round with the lace rows?)

  19. Just keep knitting and following the written directions, it doesn't matter that the. Stitch count changes as long as the pattern is repeated correctly. You might want to add a stitch marker after every repeat to help. Good luck :)
