KNIT: EMERALD COWL

Green Cowl

My emerald green Noble Cowl (Ravelry link) by Emily Kausalik, knit in Ella Rae Bamboo Silk (70/30). Soft, silky and deliciously drapey.

I actually finished this back in August, but just never got a chance to photograph it. Today however is a wet, unseasonably cold Sunday and seemed the perfect time to get this gorgeous piece out again.  


Lacework

I love the open lacework and the slouchy feel. It makes for the perfect mild weather accessory, offering a little warmth, a whole lot of style and punchy colour.

I usually wear this with my bird brooch gifted to me by some wonderful work colleagues.

The knit is the perfect place for my little bird to nest...

  1. So gorgeous! Love the colour, love the lace! Was it easy or tricky? The yarn sounds interesting too!

  2. Thanks Sarah! It was pretty easy, just a whole heap of K2Tog and yarn overs and SKP. You can do it easily! The yarn is lovely but ridiculously slippery - some of my yarn overs ended up massive loops as tensioning them was a bit messy. But it blocked perfectly :)

  4. That's so pretty! I love it with the navy top too. For me, navy and emerald is the perfect springtime color combination.

  8. I never noticed this top looked navy till you mentioned it Gail! It is in fact black, but a washed out old black :) I might have to get a navy one now.
