Amerie - revisited

Amerie cowl
July 2017
Amerie was a great project for evening TV viewing. The two-row pattern was very easy to memorize and to knit.

The photo doesn't show it clearly, but the cowl is doubled (50 inches in circumference) and 5 inches wide.  It would not have required blocking, but I did it anyway to open the stitches a bit. Knit flat, a three-needle bind off (pattern uses a provisional cast on) grafted the two ends together.

The Yak/wool blend is soft, but somewhat splitty. Yarn details can be found on this earlier post.

  1. The yarn color is so pretty - on my monitor it comes through as sort of a spruce blue. Gorgeous.

  4. I steer clear of splitty yarns. I have to say your results are just lovely Nancy.

  5. That is so pretty. I've never knit with Yak myself but have "felt" a hat knitted with it before. So soft. That color is just beautiful.
