Isn't this color combo just stunning? I love this hand dyed yarn from Luna Grey for so many reasons. It's fabulous for colorwork, and one of the softest yarns you can wear against your skin, which makes it perfect for this design. The above version is the Short Loop version, which requires one skein of each color! A luxurious cowl, for sure!
The Long Loop version, shown below, is worked in Quince & Co, Chickadee, which is also amazing yarn to work with. The colorwork really pops, and the blend of North American Wool is not only soft against the skin, but really WARM! And you truly can't beat the price for the quality of this yarn, it's perfect for the long loop version of this design.
Doesn't the motif look like giant knitted stitches too? Funny how I worked up two of these babies and it wasn't until I sent the pattern for tech editing that my tech editor pointed that out to me....now it's all I can see, haha!
