70s Inspired Cowl

Pattern: 70s Inspired Cowl by Grace Akhrem
Yarn: Lorna's Lace Shepherd Sock in Pine and China Blue, Hand Jive Nature's Palette in Light Teal and blue Koigu KPM
Needles: US6 Addi Long-Tip Lace Clicks
Notes: I was given this pattern by Grace Akhrem at TNNA last summer. I found it in my office while looking for something else but I had to knit it. The pattern calls for 75 yards of four colors of fingering weight yarn. It's a great stashbuster. I grabbed four shades of blue, green or blue-green and got started. It's a simple four-row feather and fan pattern so it's a really, easy and quick knit. I a) failed to follow the stripe pattern correctly and b) ran out of one of my colors so it's an improvised stripe and I only have 17 stripes instead of the 19 (?) called for in the pattern.
