Dolores Park Cowl



Well, my lenten shopping freeze ended ended almost two weeks ago and have I got the packages and yarn coming in to prove it. This project was the result of the visit to one of my favorite local yarn shops, ...have you any wool?. I stopped in the store because I had 10 minutes to spare before a doctor's appointment (gosh, I've got no self control, do I?) and came out with yarn for two projects.





(a multi-tasker at heart...talking with Catherine, while taking a picture. Hi Cathy!)

I knit this cowl on Saturday and I loved working with Malabrigo for the first time. Because I bought the worsted version, I just double the yarn for the pattern and I left out two rows. I ended up having about 6 inches of yarn leftover, so it was a good thing I did.







Here are the details:
Pattern: Dolores Park Cowl
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted
Color: 92 Little Lovely
Needles: Size 13

  2. Beautiful yarn! I love the color. I have yet to experience the wonders of Malabrigo myself. I hear it is heavenly. BTW, what a cute name for a yarn store.
