I was gifted a luscious skein of sport weight alpaca last Christmas. All year, I've eyed that skein wondering what it wanted to become. A month ago the skein spoke to me, it said "a cowl". So I searched Ravelry and found this pattern (the original).
I added a purl row in between five rows of stockinette stitch to add visual variety, I love the way this cowl turned out. And it can be wrapped twice around the neck--so so cozy!
