gentille cowl #2: ta-da!

This yarn is amazing, even the pooling looks great in the finished project!

After blocking the fabric is lightweight and airy:

If you want to make one, the pattern costs money but I think it’s worth it, and it can be purchased and downloaded here.

Yarn: KnitPicks Hawthorne in Alberta Arts (1 skein makes 4 repetitions of the pattern)

Needles: US 4 (3.50mm)

The pattern works up quickly (this took me about 3 days to complete, not counting the blocking/drying), and it is easy to remember, even the lace part!

Here’s a closeup of the garter stitch so you can see the beautiful colors in this yarn:

What a lovely  colorway, and a great pattern!  I might just make another…

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’ll be back soon, most likely with some crochet!
