Once it starts cooling down around here, my fingers start itching for cowls and scarfs. This is the Millwater cowl, I finished it last month. This may be the most enjoyable pattern I have ever knit! I could not put this project down. I have been reading a lot lately, and this pattern is so simple and easy... perfect for knitting and reading! Two of my favorite things.
The yarn is Madeline Tosh DK in antique lace. I picked up a couple skeins while I was at the Sewing Summit in October. It is really great yarn. I love the color, it works with almost everything.
I highly recommend this pattern to newer knitters. The stitches are so simple, and the big chunky cable is really easy! It is a really good project to learn cables on. I promise it is easier than it looks. More info and links to the pattern can be found on my ravelry page.
