Dew Drop Cowl


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!


Here is my ravelry project page.

  13. Oh what an inspiration you are to me! I am working on my very first cowl! And I can't wait to secretly send you a picture of it when it's done:) (Full disclosure: Being so new to knitting, I actually had to watch a youtube video to learn how to cast on.) Thank you!
