Cullumah Cowls

Take a pretty ribbed pattern...

a luscious yarn in 2 different weights...

and just one size of needles...

and you get plenty of versatility.

The lovely infinity cowl, worked in fingering weight yarn and blocked to show off the pattern, can be worn long or doubled around the neck for extra warmth.  Worked in a sport weight and left unblocked, the neck cowl hugs you with softness and warmth.  Mix and match the yarns and versions.  One pattern, multiple options!

The yarn is a brand-new release from Elemental Affects.  It's 100% U.S.-grown Cormo, hand-dyed by Jeane of Elemental Affects, and it's soft and scrumptious and sproingy and just wonderful.  There will be a worsted weight later in the year, and you can bet that I'll be getting my hands on some of that.

My niece Johanna was a good sport and modeled for me, braving high temps to put on woolens.  She's a dear.  I should probably knit her something.

The pattern is over here on Ravelry.
