Annabella's Cowl Project
We love the versatility of this simple-to-knit piece. A perennial favorite among our Churchmouse Classics since its publication in 2009, this project is just as pleasurable to knit as it is to wear. 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. Project includes two skeins of Silk Purse and one skein of Haiku; holding one strand of each together throughout is color and fiber heaven in your hands from beginning to end.
Grab the pattern below, and then choose your favorite colorway. You'll be off and knitting in no time!
