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!
