Fall is here and therefore it's official knitting season! :) Ok, actually, for me knitting season is all year round :) But still: Time for some Fall Knitting! Yay! Enjoying a nice cup of coffee or tea during the late afternoon when the sun starts going down (days are getting noticeably shorter here in Sweden now) and grabbing your knitting project - relaxing heaven! :)
My latest project is the Lacy Love Cowl, that I want to show you today and as usual, provide you with the pattern :)
I had about two and a half balls of the lovely Drops Karisma yarn left from knitting the BEALIN Infinity Scarf. And since I fell in love with the scarf myself: I simply had to knit a cowl!
It was quite a quick knit. (little more than two balls of yarn..) I found a pretty pattern and started knitting. It's a relatively simple lace patern with some more solid leaf areas in the middle. I really like it, it's beautiful!
Usually for lace patterns you use finer yarn (Drops Karisma is worsted weight) but I think the cowl became so pretty! I will definately use lace patterns for this kind of yarn and projects again.
The lace pattern I used for this cowl is a pattern from Berroco.
And I have to say: I just love the feel of virgin wool. That's why I love the Karisma yarn this much. It's soft and very warm, even if you're knitting a lacy pattern. Virgin wool by nature is heat- and humidity regulating so there's no sweating with this cowl! Only cozy and comfy warmth...
The cowl can also be worn as a nice and snug shrug... :)
(I love pieces with mutiple wearing options!! :) )
And it also cuddles me warm and happy - I love you soft lacy blue cowl <3 :)
