Welted Cowl - Softyak DK Version

Welted Cowl - Softyak DK Version

"Yarn tasting!"

Truth time, we have fallen hard for Rowan's Softyak DK. So soft, and summery - and a dozen colors! So while our sample knitters were busily knitting garments (Ketu and Nambu from the Softyak DK book), we couldn't wait to sample this beauty. Our Welted Cowl transitions easily from late spring into summer (and fall!), and is warm and light at the same time. A two skein project, so it's quick, and alternates knitting and purling in the round - just the right amount of variation and mindless. A fun way to taste this new yarn!

Grab the pattern below (if you don’t already have it) along with the yarn--you'll need two skeins to make the cowl size shown.
