A long due post... This cowl was finished back in May when I was lying on the couch with two broken legs.
I used Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend for this cowl and whilst silk is great against skin, it definitely streches a lot. But the dye-lot and the stitch definition are simply a dream. This was also the first time that I tried picot-hem and felt as if I discovered THE secret for neat edges.
Pattern: Spiral Cowl (Rav link). A free pattern and knits up in no time. A great last-minute gift project.
