Cirrus Cowl

photo-25

Cowls are fantastic for the colder months and they knit up super quick which makes them the perfect gift knitting. YES! We are already thinking about our handmade holiday here at the shop! The Cirrus Cowl from Swans Island Yarns was a pattern that I was drawn to immediately. Paired with the String Theory Caper Sock Yarn, a great squishy fingering weight yarn that is 80% Merino, 10% Nylon, and 10% CASHMERE, the Cirrus Cowl makes for a luxurious accessory that is both functional and fashionable. String Theory yarn has quickly become one of my favorites and I loved the color Shale for this project. There is enough variegation to keep everything interesting, but it is subtle enough that it doesn’t over power the cable pattern of the cowl.
