The Design

"A one-skein delight!"

Combine rhythmic knits, purls and slipped stitches in the right order and you get elegant tweed stitchone of our favorites for a cowl. The pattern also includes a simple stockinette version, ideal for knitting while chatting with your girlfriends. Take your pick!

This quick project is perfect for any sport- or DK-weight yarn. We love the softness, drape, and rich luster of Blue Sky Fibers Alpaca Silk. This blend of silk and alpaca really sings in over 20 shades, ranging from neutrals to pastels and delicious jewel tones. We used one skein of color 113 Ice for the tweed-stitch version and one skein of 138 Garnet for the stockinette version.
