The Quite Contrary Cowl

by knittinginatree

If I can keep my wits about me, I’m going to try a once a month post about knitting I’ve done for friends. We’ll see if I can keep up. But, for now and without further ado, let me introduce The Quite Contrary Cowl made for my mensch of a pal Mary.

Mary, drew up the design that she wanted and I knitted it into reality while I was visiting her last month. I’m planning to share the pattern at some point this month. In the meantime, take a look below and let me know what think.

The pictures of course don’t do it justice because the best part about this cowl is how soft it is. Of course that’s because it’s made with one skein of Malabrigo Twist (100% Pure Baby Merino Wool) color swatch 411 Green Gray. And, one skein of Symphony, Custom Dyed Yarns by Prism (80% Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon) color swatch 742 Mojave. What a dream to work with, I didn’t want it to end.

As you can see, it’s quite versatile just like my friend Mary.
