I saw this cowl I don’t even remember where. Pinterest, perhaps? And I really liked the look of it, so Wednesday even at my knitting group at my LYS, I picked up this absolutely lush yarn by Blue Sky Alpaca. The cowl took on a life of its own between the first cast on and now – Instead of just a cowl, I wanted an infinity scarf, but the first time around I didn’t cast on enough, so I frogged it and cast on again – it may be a little long now, but it will still work beautifully. In the pattern, it said to cast on 100 stitches. I cast on 200. I used not quite two full hanks of yarn. And now? I want to do a hat to go with, though not in herringbone, just the same yarn.
