…. is a re-make of Huckleberry Cowl, a design of mine from 2012.  I love this cowl but I think the original sample didn’t do the pattern justice, the yarn was a little too silky so didn’t give the cowl a firm structure.   I decided to re-make it, slightly longer and in a sturdier yarn – but what to choose?

In my stash I had a skein of Triskelion Yarn and Fibre’s Pryderi Dk, in a gorgeous blue – Cornflower.   It is soft yet sturdy and is giving good stitch definition.  In fact, it is perfect for this design.

Now it’s on the needles, I can’t put it down.  So I predict I’ll finish it and be blocking within 24 hours,.   Then I’ll re-write the pattern adding new photos and yarn.     The pattern may well be a contender for the small selection I will take to Cheshire Fibre Festival. 

Happy knitting xxx
