For Christmas, my sister gave me a project to knit! At first, when she handed it to me, I thought she was giving me yarn and a pattern to knit a scarf for her, and was like, “Oh…how thoughtful of you for yourself.” But no, it was for me!
Pattern: Chunky Seeded Cowl
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky Natural
I love this! It’s big and chunky and I feel for a second like I’m a hip Brooklynite walking in Park Slope instead of a Denverite schlepping it on Larimer.
I would never, never have bought this color for myself–am not usually a fan of chartreuse, but I think it looks just lovely all knitted up.
The fabric is lofty and heavily textured:
And in case of a sudden snowstorm, I can pull it up over my head to protect my coif.
I happen to have a skein left over and think that a slouchy hat would be the perfect companion piece.
