Just as soon as I finished the hawser ply yarn, I wanted to cast on for a project. I was just so thrilled with the yarn that it was impossible to leave it in skein form. I chose a cowl and got started on it right away.
The colors of the duo are very subtle, and very beautiful.
The way the knit looks with the hawser ply is a ton of fun. Very bouncy, very open, very….big. It’s like hawser ply yarn is a little larger than life.
I had enough to have a long cowl, plenty to double up. It’s big and bouncy and squishy and muted. It’s also quite drapy. I really love it.
Overall, the hawser ply experiment was a smashing success! I am so glad to have given it a try. I hope my upcoming spinning experiments go as well!
