Cambrian Cowl


Pattern: Cambrian Cowl from Coastal Knits
Yarn: Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande
Needle: US10
Notes: This is a very quick project. You could do it in a day except that you need to block the top portion before picking up stitches for the bottom portion. You definitely don't want to skip the blocking or this will be a sad rolled-up tube. The pattern calls for 150 yards. I knit the top portion off of one skein and assumed that if I started the bottom portion continuing with the same skein I'd run out (there's 110 yards in a skein). So I started the bottom with my second skein. When I finished and weighed everything I discovered that I had exactly one skein's worth of yarn but now in two balls! Oh well, live and learn.
