A few weeks ago Gwynn wrote a great post on the latest project she was knitting with Plymouth Baby Alpaca Brush Yarn. She raved about this luxuriously soft yarn and couldn’t wait to start another project with it.
Well, in a flash she knit up the Rippling Ringlet Infinity Cowl and inspired many others to follow her lead. Her cowl is now complete and “oh, my gosh” – it is lovely! The yarn is so sinfully soft, welcoming and inviting. One might say, it’s pure pleasure to be enveloped in this cowl.
I’ve always liked this cowl pattern for its simplicity and style, but after braving the harsh winter elements this year I’ve come to appreciate it further for its sheer practicality. It’s a given the cowl looks great loosely draped, but when doubled over and worn closely around your neck it instantly transforms into a great looking extremely warm winter accessory.
When there’s a bite in the air and frigid temperatures are raging simply pull up the cowl to cover your nose and mouth. Then when the wind starts to blow, pull the back of the cowl up over your hat for extra warmth. I’ve worn it all ways, and can confidently say it’s great in all situations.
Susan has been gracious enough to model -thanks Susan!
If you’re tempted, pick up 2 skeins of Baby Alpaca Brush (can you believe that’s all it takes) and the popular Rippling Ringlet Infinity Cowl. Add both pattern and yarn to your cart, and the pattern will be FREE when you purchase the yarn! You’ll love it – stylish, comfortable and practical. Happy knitting!
