Fall Cowl

If you remember a few posts ago  I had spun some yarn using the fractal spinning method. I just finished knitting this yarn up into a cowl. The pattern is Stacked Eyelet Cowl by Ami Madison. I ended up making it too small at first and had to rip it out and start again with more stitches and bigger needles.

Here is the pre-blocking picture:

I think that the colors turned out pretty interesting and will most likely be trying this fractal plying method again in the future.

The cowl is long enough that I can either loop it around my neck once or twice, I am pretty excited that the weather is finally cooling down enough that I will be able to wear it soon!

Lily was very interested in what I was doing and decided to be in the pictures as well.

She’s even a pretty good model!

  1. That’s very pretty! The cowl, that is, although Lily’s kind of cute herself. Haha! I think you’ll find perfect weather for wearing this when you come to Alaska soon! There was snow on the hillside today.

  2. I really like how the colors flow together! Nice. :)
