|Dimpled Eyelet Cowl|
Okay, I hate to sound like an orange-yarn-hating jerk here, but I'm SO GLAD I FINISHED KNITTING THE TWO SKEINS OF THIS STUFF I BOUGHT (since I already knit the Feather Lace Cowl and the Gathered Mesh Cowl out of the same yarn). Pheee-eeeew. And now that that's off my chest, let's talk about the pattern. At heart, this thing is based on an upside-down picot eyelet, and it's knit from the top down with stitches added every other row for shape (this also helps stagger the eyelet pattern). It's a shape that's been brewing in my head for awhile now too, so I'm glad it's finally come to fruition. It's also got a very lovely texture!
