This was a surprisingly quick knit. I was mesmerized by the emerging design - combinations of knit and purl create a fabric with rich texture.
This cowl comes in two sizes, and I made the larger one. The well-written pattern includes both written and charted instructions with an optional rolled, stockinette edge. I opted for the roll.
The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Clara, colorway Blue Me Away.
Clara comes in large, 250 gram skeins. I had made my Winter Trails hat from this colorway and used the leftovers for Dovetail. These two projects were a good combination for one skein of Clara. Between the two I used almost the entire skein. With sixteen grams left there was just enough cushion that I didn't panic about running out of yarn.
And now I'm off to shift gears . . . planning spring colorways and samples as I eye more snow in the forecast.
