Yep, my 6th one, although this one was not joined in the end to make a circle but was made slightly longer for a regular scarf instead of a cowl. This was made for another coworker of mine who saw the one I made for my first coworker and loved it.
This one used about 240g of yarn. The yarn is Cascade Yarns Eco Alpaca in Charcoal Twist, and let me tell you this yarn is some of the softest I’ve ever used, ever. So soft that it’s hard to tie off because the fibers are so slippery. And made into a pattern like this, it’s certainly cushy and feels very luxurious!
That is it folded into 4 layers.
The only thing I don’t like is that I think it’s too short. I almost hate to give it to my coworker since she’s even paying for the yarn but I don’t think I can face undoing the whole thing and starting all over. Hopefully it will stretch some.
The Catherine wheel pattern is visible with this yarn but looks slightly less distinguishable than it does in completely solid yarn. I hope that’s OK with my coworker, too, but she wanted shades of grey so I think it’s what she wanted.
Well, that’s all for today, see you soon!
