I needed a gift for a friend, and as the weather in this part of the world has been getting cooler, I was hoping for something that would get a lot of use in the coming months. Not too fussy, not hard to wear, and would go with everything. I decided on the Nennir Cowl, and then all I had to do was discover favourite wardrobe colours.
Fortunately I had the exact colour of this yarn in my stash just waiting for the correct project and the right person who would love it.
I’ll admit that initially I was done in by the cable pattern a couple of times when I wasn’t paying attention, but with some concentration they do flow very intuitively, and it was a wonderful pattern to work and came together quite quickly.
With a provisional cast on at the beginning, and then kitchener stitched together at the end, its a very neat endless celtic cable pattern.
Topping it all off, it’s comfortable to wear too! I think I may end up making another of these for myself! But first I will have to finish my cobweb weight alpaca Aeolian.
Now, some of you may remember that I’ve made this one before for a friend, but I loved it so much I had to have one in my own wardrobe! I’m still at the beginning, so not yet ripping my hair out. Wish me luck!
