I used my leftovers from this project to knit a cowl designed specially to showcase all of the Plucky colors exclusive to the Churchmouse Yarn & Teas collection. You can see all of the beautiful skeins of yarn here. Because the yarn (Primo Fingering) is fingering weight, and I wanted something with a little more heft to it, I knit double-stranded on US 7 16″ circular.
I modified the Camptown Races pattern as follows: 14 rounds of a neutral (Morning Cuppa) knit between each section of 32 rounds of a color. There are seven colors in all, so with the interspersed neutrals, there are 14 sections. The resulting cowl fits snugly when doubled around my neck – I might have added another couple of inches to give myself a little more space, but then, I don’t like it when a cowl sags down around my chest, instead of fitting snugly to keep my neck warm, so this is probably the best possible length and fit.
I cannot believe how soft and luxurious this yarn is, especially when knit doubled and wrapped around my neck!Pin It
