Slytherin Green Cowl
Yarn: Misti International Misti Alpaca Chunky in color 1440
Needles: US 15 / 10.0 mm
I bought this lucious yarn ages ago when The Knitting Room in East Arlington was closing its doors. I hadn't been able to bring myself to make anything with it, for fear of not making just the right thing. It is so very soft that I knew I wanted something where I would get the advantage of getting to touch it all the time, especially near my neck or face. Also the fuzziness of the yarn made me want to avoid a lot of fancy patterning, since it will get lots in halo as it wears. Then in my Ravelry wanderings I found this pattern, and I knew it was perfect for me.
The stupid cold weather combined with what a fast knit this pattern is was great motivation to actually make something with this snuggly yarn. I actually knit this pattern from the bottom up, rather than the top down, as the pattern reads, but otherwise the changes were small. And just in time for more snow this week!
