On the Needles - Cloud

Fair Isle Cowl So, I had lots of time in a car last week as I traveled around Eastern Pennsylvania with our rep Erlinda (whom has become quite a good knitter) and I had 2 balls of Cloud with me.  I hadn't found the time to be able to play with this lovely yarn very much besides a swatch up to last week.  It is a squishy blend of 70% merino wool and 30% baby alpaca in a crocheted tubular construction.  The yarn has an amazing amount of bounce and energy as does its undyed sibling - Eco Cloud. So here is the result... And here is the pattern: Fair Isle Cowl Designed by Shannon Dunbabin A sqishy-soft, warm cowl.
