Created from hand-painted, merino wool and silk wool, this Sweet Peas cowl is stunning in shaded of purples and blues. Patterned with dainty flowers climbing a garden trellis, this cowl is just the right accessory to add warm and softness to any outfit. Wear it with jeans, or to add color to a neutral business suit, either way, it’s sure to be a favorite.

First time using the Smokeberry infinity scarf pattern for a cowl and I love the results. The purls and cables give the cowl a much different look than my other lace patterns and I used up practically every yard of yarn I had left to make it as long as I could. I started out with the first chart on the Jaali shawl pattern to give it a nice lacy edge. I think the next time I do this, I’ll add some stitches to that chart so I can have more control over where the points hit. Other than that, I’d make no changes to it. I found the Smokeberry easy to knit once I got into the rhythm of the chart. It might be a little more complicated for a beginning knitter, but since I’ve done Aran-knit before, it was pretty easy for me.
