Pattern: a simple stockinette cowl, by me
Yarn: Twillingate Farm’s Alpaca yarn
Needles: Size 8 circs
So I’d tried to make a hat out of this yarn, and the heavier weight yarn just didn’t work in a more formal pattern. So I frogged that, and went with a really simple cowl instead. I believe this was a 90 stitch cast on. I alternated one row of of the heavier weight (about an aran weight) with two rows of the lighter weight (about a finger weight), held double.
It’s a lovely, thick fabric. It’s going to be awesome for snow removal, and the like – nothing is going to get past it.
