I’m rather obsessed with knitting cowls right now – so here’s another pattern for you! I’m loving this light yet warm cowl with my summery tops, since it hasn’t actually been cool enough for full on sweaters yet.

Cuppa Tea Cowl


This soft, drapey cowl is worked in the perfect blend of baby alpaca, silk, camel and cashmere – what could be better? Knit in the round with four different easy and pretty stitch patterns as well as four different colours, which keeps the knitting interesting and fun. This cowl is great for using up the smaller amounts of pretty yarns lurking in your stash!

    That is an absolutely lovely design, Laura. I love the textures. And it looks like it would meet my simplicity/relaxation knitting standards!
