As promised, I am working my way through the beautiful YOTH yarn raw palette colors . . .
Yarn: YOTH Big Sister – colorway Wild Rice (3 skeins)
Pattern: Double Basketweave Cowl, by the Fringe Association
Needles: US 10s (32″ circulars)
My only modification was to skip Rounds 6-10 in the final (4th) set of rounds – I had the yarn to do it, but I felt like the cowl was getting too wide. As per the pattern, I knit with the DK weight yarn held doubled throughout, and the result is so think and warm! The color shows off the pattern beautifully, and vice versa.
I like how the cowl can be worn either double-wrapped around my neck (so cozy!) or more like a scarf, hanging down in a single loop – I haven’t typically worn cowls this second way, but I’ve seen so many people “on the street” wearing them like this, I thought I’d give it a try.
I now have partial skeins of at least three colors of YOTH Big Sister raw palette yarns, just taking up space in my stash – if anyone out there would like to experiment with this beautiful yarn, post a reply and I’ll drop my leftover skeins in the mail to you 🙂
