I am completely and utterly obsessed with cowlettes. I have ALL the ideas. And then people like the lovely Fiber Seed folks send me fabulous squishy yarn and I get to make whatever I want out of it. Life is good.
This yarn has got some squish y’all. And such beautiful colors. And the couple that runs it are just as sweet as can be. I especially like when good yarn comes from good people. Makes me feel good about telling other folks to give them all their monies. Yep, you need some of this Fiber Seed stuff!
So I took this stuff and made a pretty cowlette. What’s a cowlette? Well it’s a shawlette that has been worked so that it is also a cowl. Which means it NEVER falls off. I would say I’m a genius but I’m not the first one to do this. But still I’m pretty darned proud of this beauty!
No I can’t take credit for the beautiful girl. That is my best friend’s daughter. She is beautiful and made of light and love and how did she just graduate high school because I’ve known her for ten years since she was a little bit. But she’s pretty right?
The cowlette (the pretty thing I’m supposed to be talking about) is worked in a very similar fashion to the Clairmore Cowlette. You work a triangle, then you join the triangle – this time with a simple 3-needle bind off – and then you work in the round to make lace magic. Magic I tell you!
Caedwyn is available as an individual pattern on Ravelry.
