Sunstone Cowl Using Shibui Tweed Silk Cloud
A free pattern from Shibui, Sunstone is a cozy, quick-to-knit cowl. Starting with a rotated long tail cast-on—a wee bit more elastic than the original long tail cast-on—a garter stitch edging leads to simple, one-by-one cross stitch pattern on a stockinette stitch background. It’s an intriguing texture that’s so easy to knit!
The Sunstone Cowl is light, delicate, and floaty in Shibui Tweed Silk Cloud. This lace-weight yarn’s core of silk has quiet, tonal flecks that seem to glimmer within the soft cloud of kid mohair. Tweed Silk Cloud brings a gentle, dreamy texture to the stitches of Sunstone.
