Sallah Cowl

You may remember when I created these art batts and spun them into singles awhile back.  I knew immediately that I’d need to make them into a cowl for my mom for christmas. First of all, the yarn was irresistible, I wanted to work with it immediately. Secondly, the darker yarn, even with all the random bits in it, seemed to me to be something my mom could pair with a nice shirt and really get some use out of. And it was Christmas knitting time and I had not yet chosen anything to knit for her.

So I chose the Sallah Cowl pattern. I liked the look of the waffley rib, and because it uses two differently sized needles, it becomes a wonderfully squishy fabric. I completed this quite awhile ago, but did not want to post it due to needing to wait until my mom opened the gift.

I love this one. It turned out bright and yet still muted. If it did not have alpaca in it, I’d have been tempted to keep it!
