New (free) Pattern and KAL time!



This little knit just happened to be on the needles while I worked other more complicated things.  I worked on it every now and then, without paying much attention to it... Until one day I realized I was knitting the last row!  And that's when the pattern was born.



For me, this cowl was a very enjoyable knit for many reasons.
- The yarn.  Oh my God the yarn!  It's called String Theory Caper Sock, and the colorway is Didgeridoo.  The yarn was "borrowed" to me.  My friend Jenny sent me this skein and I was supposed to knit something for her with it.  So this cowl has already an owner.  I just feel lucky that I was able to know this yarn, which I would have not chosen myself.  It is beyond gorgeous!
- The size.  You have no idea how awesome it felt for me (who always has a huge sweater project in her bag) to be travelling around with this tiny project!  And I was sure that I'd have lots of fun without running out of yarn...
- The stitch pattern.  It has it all: cables and lace.  I am a lover of simple knits, but for some reason I always tend to choose intrincate stitch patterns.  This one was super fun to make, but easy to memorize. 



We'll be having a KAL (knit-along) during the month of June in my Ravelry group forum.  There will be prizes!  Come join the party if you like, we'd love you to share your progress with us.  Hope to see you there!
