Malabrigo Pagoda Cowl
I think I've mentioned before why I am so hopeless in my desire to become a stashless knitter - I'll fall in love with a yarn (it's the color I see first) and I buy ONE skein in the belief that I will find a just-right pattern for it eventually. And I do. And I did:
Heather knit this cowl with the gorgeous "Vaa" colorway in the Malabrigo. And then I remembered that Vanessa had knit one too. I'm just a little late to the party. I'd already used some of the Pagoda to knit a ball, but I was confident I'd have enough left over to knit the cowl.
The pattern, Birthday Cowl, is from Nova's blog, Novamade. I used a Size 8 (5mm) circular needle and didn't make any modifications to the pattern. Mine is about 9 inches tall; I didn't measure the opening, but since it goes over my head, it's just right. I'll be shipping this to my mom because it's already cold in Cowiche. (Jayne, don't show her this blog entry please!)
Here's a less artsy shot of the cowl -- it's a more accurate color too.
I've got a few other cowl patterns in my queue and a lot of potential necks to warm! Have you knit one yet?
