A First Cowl

As promised, here is more detail on the Sky Braid Cowl.  It is laceweight, 100% cashmere, from Sericin Silkworks.  I wanted a cowl of large, loose folds, with a tidy braided edge.  I restarted this pieace 3 times (after knitting 6″ of it) before settling on the result below.  I had to consult Victorian Lace Today twice, to remind myself on how to do faggotting.

I only wish I could have figured out a way to make this design reversible, while still containing all the “loose fold” elements I wanted, so that I could make it a moebius cowl instead of a straight cowl.  Who knows maybe I’ll restart it a 4th time ;)

This is  a beautiful yarn to work with and the subtle colour changes are perfect.  I wouldn’t change a thing!
