Sunset Aeolian cowl

Finished the last of the three projects on the needles last night and blocked it this morning. After wearing my Pirate shawl as a scarf, I decided that I wanted a cowl made out of the same gradient yarn. They’re much easier to wear and not as over-powering for a short person like myself. I made this one slightly larger than the last time, increasing two leaves in the round. I like that it’s larger and lies slightly lower on the neckline but it might be a little big for me. Next time, I’ll stick to 140 stitches instead of 160 for this pattern.  I’m very pleased with the results regardless and it will go with so many of my blouses.
