New Test Knit: Cottina Cowl

Now really I know that there hasn't been much in the way of Spring in most of North America so far, except... and no one in Spokane really wants to admit it verbally... (here) Shhh... don't tell anyone, or even think it too loud, we are enjoying some not totally buried in snow weather and have had a delicious amount of sunshine so far. I even roto-tilled my garden two weeks ago and planted a spring cover crop. But of course if I tell you this it will all come crashing down in a blizzard of doom sooo really I am not saying anything about the weather... we are talking about a spring cowl didn't you know?


Cottina is a pretty cowl worked with long striping Noro Taiyo Sport, which isn't really a sport weight at all actually a sneaky DK, kinda like our conversation about the weather.. ahem cowl. This cowl uses one skein and when worked out of Taiyo is perfect for the warming breezes of spring, just enough wool and silk to be warm but enough cotton to be cool. The pattern includes instructions on how to increase repeats if you want to use a thinner gauge yarn and if you test it I am fine with a smaller gauge yarn with notes on the pattern page.
