Aspen Neck and Ridged Lace Cowls

by exercisebeforeknitting

As I mentioned yesterday, I made two other cowls last month.

Prune!

Pattern: Aspen Neck Cowl

Yarn: Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk Georgette in Pearl, a gift from Christine

Needles: US 4

I thoroughly enjoyed knitting with this yarn! It is so luxurious – soft, warm and shiny! I would most certainly call it bling for knitters.

The Aspen Neck Cowl is supposed to have the purl side out but I rather prefer it with the knit side out. I love those purl ridges. They were, in fact, the inspiration for the second cowl.

Ridged Lace Cowl

For lack of a better name, I’m calling this the Ridged Lace Cowl and you can find the free pattern here. The stitch pattern is so simple that I am not even going to bother with a pdf. If you decide to knit it, please let me know what you think!

Here is a closer view of the stitch pattern, although the color is a bit washed out. Bright orange is difficult to capture! The photos above are better representations of the color.

Stay tuned for some Nancy Bush socks!
