Embrace

embrace2

I wanted to show off the new yarn we got in stock at the shop, so I knit up my cowl design, since fall/winter is just around the corner. 3 balls of Embrace will make 2 cowls. You need 1 and 1/3 ball to make a cowl.

For this cowl, I cast on 20 stitches instead of the 22 called for in the pattern and omitted the K1 after the first 3 stitches and the K1 before the last 3 (on RS), and the P1 after the first 3 stitches and the P1 before the last 3 stitches (on the WS). It was super bulky and I didn’t fear rolling in on the edges. For bulky yarn, you should leave the extra 2 stitches in to help prevent rolling.

Buttons are in stock in the shop! This pattern makes great Xmas gifts and it knits up in no time at all!

Love this pattern, it looks so comfortable. I was wondering if you could recommend a good yarn for a throw (blanket) that will get lots of (machine) washing, but needs to be super soft... and last! Thx, Bren
