Amber, russet, lavender, gold and pumpkin combine to create the gorgeous Autumn colors of this Italian Sunset Cowl. Hand-knit in soft, Italian Merino wool, with a sprinkling of purple glass beads to accent its lacy edging, this cowl is sure to please. Warm and cozy, the perfect way to start the season right.
This Italian yarn is just so beautiful it’s a dream to knit with. Using the Jaali pattern, and edging the cowl with sparkling purple glass beads, this cowl turned out stunning and I have to say it is one of my favorites. I love how the Jaali pattern brings out the best in the colors of this yarn. I tend to not pair a busy yarn with a busy pattern, but in this instance, the two work very well together. I remember when I first knit this pattern and how difficult it was for me to get right, but now it seems I can knit this in my sleep. It just proves that if you keep at something, eventually it will get easier to do.
