Didion Cowl Using Shibui Echo & Silk Cloud
Didion, a free pattern with the purchase of the Shibui yarn for the project, is a doubled cowl with a dynamic, two-color twist! Two separate, rectangular panels are grafted around each other, one piece intersecting the other like two links of a chain. The resulting cowl is doubly warm, doubly cozy, and doubly stylish.
The striking Didion Cowl is knit with one strand of Shibui Echo and one strand of Shibui Silk Cloud held together throughout. The silk and mohair of Silk Cloud, a lace-weight yarn, adds a glowing fuzz to the silk noil and merino of Echo. Together these two yarns create a silky-soft fabric with a lovely, deep luster!
Each Cowl: 7" tall & 27" circumference.
