And an archangel. At least that is what the color used in my new cowl is called. One can hear angels singing when wearing Malabrigos rasta yarn. Wish I could say the same when paying for it....
That is really strange - it only took a few hours to knit it. I had this problem finding the perfect buttons.
I am specific about what I want - or should I say - what I do not want. When I came over these huge ones on Etsy it was love at first sight.
Out with the yarn, the needles and the pattern. And do I love this? YES!!! Looking at the skeins I thought it looked rather boring. But the colors are so lovely when knitted into this. I can not believe it.
I added extra stitches (from 19st to 27st) to get a 30cm wide cowl. And placed the buttons different from the pattern. Often cowls are nice to look at but not warming the neck. When placing the buttons like that, it keeps me warm and I can show off those dinner plates buttons..
