One-skein cowls

I didn’t use a pattern for either of these – just made them up as I went along.

Yarn:  Hue Loco Mohair Lace (70% kid mohair / 30% silk one-ply lace weight) – 1 skein (458 yds) in color Dark Amber

Needles:  16″ US 7s

Pattern:  Cast on 120 sts, join in the round, knit to 13″ (I wish that I’d knit it a little tighter – I’d probably cast on only 100 sts if I was to do it again, I like cowls that don’t sag, but fit closer around my neck).

Yarn:  Handspun (99g of merino/tencel) from Knotty By Nature in Victoria, B.C.

I don’t even remember what size needles I used for this one – I just knit stockinette flat, with a garter stitch ridge every couple of inches, until I ran out of yarn, then seamed the ends together.
