Third Sleeve Syndrome - D'Arcy Encore
|My friend Reneé took this photo of my D'Arcy when I visited last week!|
She has a "sweet spot" in her home, perfect for photos....the light
is wonderful and the colour of the wall makes a great backdrop!
D'Arcy by Marie Wallin, Rowan Magazine 58
I know I keep going on about it,
but I LOVE IT, and I LOVE FAZED TWEED!
|The sleeve was lying on my coffee table, |
as all my knits do :)
It is a gradual increase from cuff to
I folded these two ends in towards
each other, and seamed the edge...
not all the way.....
I'd say just over half way...
|Flipping it over, well, what to you see?|
I see a cow!
|Looking down the neck opening,|
yup, loops like a cowl to me.
|Place it over the neckline of D'Arcy,|
still looking like a cowl!
|It definitely wears like a cowl!|
Who would have thought that
a crochet cowl would be so warm!
You may (or may not) know that I am slightly fixated on simple cowl "swatch" designs. When I first got my hands and needles on Rowan's Fine Art Aran yarn, I created a trio of Swatch Cowls. You can find them as downloads on the Rowan web site...
|Fine Art Aran Stocking Stitch Swatch Cowl|
|Fine Art Aran 4x4 Rib Swatch Cowl|
|Fine Art Aran Seed Stitch Swatch Cowl|
Then I decided, why not try a crochet sampler swatch cowl....the "recipe" for this is here on the blog...

There are some gorgeous new shades of Fine Art Aran...I have some Dormouse in my stash, and if there is any left over from whatever I decide to knit with it...well, you know another swatch style cowl will be in my future :)
