Annabella's Cowl Project
We love the versatility of this simple-to-knit piece. And in this exquisite pairing of yarns from Alchemy, even the sensitive soul will find it's soft next to the skin. In her plein-air California dying studio, fine artist Gina Wilde creates colors with unmatched depth and complexity.
Grab the pattern below, and then choose your favorite colorway. You'll be off and knitting in no time!

US 9 (5.5mm) 16" circular needle, or size to obtain gauge; one stitch marker; darning needle to finish.
