Eyelet Cowl by Cathy Carron FO

Pattern: #11 Eyelet Cowl by Cathy Carron
Source: Vogue Knitting Holiday 2009
Start:: May 11 Finish: May 27, 2012
Modifications: None

VK's featured photos of this pattern show a marled, tweedy kind of of yarn that adds a lot to the look of the finished piece. The use of this yarn makes for a more understated look.  We'll see how often I  reach for it this autumn/winter.

Its a straightforward eyelet tube in a luscious silk/wool blend yarn.  Drapy and soft on the skin yet with enough body built in through the design to stay up around the neck where it belongs.
Garter stitch borders top and bottom.
 I-cord through one row of eyelets to keep things snug around the neck

"Wimple-ready" too! (Does this pic remind anyone else of the "French Lieutenant's Woman" Movie Poster?)
Bought the yarn, on sale, on spec and its been sitting here for years without a purpose. (what is my problem with having a little yarn stash?) Honestly while I'm happy with the FO, I have to admit I'm thrilled to have the yarn used up.

Thanks for dropping by!

we watch different movies - this has more of an "Alien" vibe to me...

I'm on the wimple side of things. Looks like a great pattern and very 'in' this year as the scarves & cowls seems to be getting bigger and bigger.
