Pepperberry cowl and mitts

Pepperberry mitts

This is a gorgeous gift set . . . or maybe it will be a gift to myself 🙂  The yarn is all marled cashmere from Pepperberry Knits.  The cowl is knit from two skeins of DK weight in color Posies (140 yds/ea) on US 6s (I actually changed to US 7s at one point, with no noticeable difference – they’re pretty interchangeable for this project).  The pattern is Churchmouse’s welted cowl and I knit the size small/medium.

The mitts are Pepperberry’s own pattern, Karen Double Layer Mittens.  I used two skeins of sport weight marled cashmere, in colors Barn Owl and Posies, and knit up the mitts on US 4s dpns.  The construction is ingenious, and I love how the color shows at the cuffs and peeks through the holes in the outer mitts.  My only complaint is that they fit very loosely – especially around the cuff – and if feels like I’m having to work at it to keep them on.
