Harvest Cowl

Image
I knit my Harvest Cowl in Rowan's Select Soffili Yak yarn in this gorgeous Jewel shade!
Other suggested yarns would be Hemp Tweed, Kid Classic or Felted Tweed and Kidsilk Haze knit together!
Knit it all one shade as per my sample....or knit each section in a different shade!
Finished cowl measures 24 cm deep and 110 cm round.  I used ALL of the 330m (360 yards) of Soffili Yak! You can adjust the depth of your cowl depending on how much yarn you have!
I've written up this simple pattern for you to knit up your own Harvest Cowl! I'd love to see a few in different yarns!
You can find the pattern on Ravelry here!
Happy Knitting!

Selects - Soffili Yak and Kidsilk Haze Vintage!

Soffili Yak and Kidsilk Haze Vintage collections!









Rowan Selects yarns should start popping up in yarn stores here in Canada and the USA soon! (If you see any in your LYS, let me know!)

There are two scheduled for late October that I want to tell you about. 

Kidsilk Haze Vintage - The same Kidsilk Haze that you love, with sort of a marl feel, this version of Kidsilk Haze has a white core. This gives the yarn a depth of colour, it sort of shimmers!!!

The other is Soffili Yak! This yarn is similar to Brushed Fleece, it's light and airy and I have to say it is a dream to knit with! I sort of love it!

The photos above are sneaky peaks of the designs that have been created for these two Select "limited edition" yarns! Designs by Lisa Richardson, Sarah Hatton, Marie Wallin! When you purchase the Selects yarn, your yarn shop should have a hard copy of these designs for you free with purchase! But never fear, they are available free for download on the Rowan web site!
