This is a cozy and lightweight cowl ideal for transitional seasons such as spring and autumn.
This cowl is made up of big, fat cables knit out of fingering weight yarn,
so the resulting fabric is quite squishy and stretchy.
I think it's a great application for that special sock-weight yarn that we all have in our stash. So many of us collect skein after skein of sock yarn while lacking the desire to knit the accompanying number of socks. Well.. maybe that is just me. :)
The yarn I used for this cowl was Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in the Ginger colorway. This color is so cozy and inviting with its rich caramely color and subtle variations. It reminds me of the color of coffee or tea when you add cream.. and sugar.
If this yarn was a food. I would eat it.
