The first set of kits we put up sold out super-fast. This is another set of yarns we think will look great in this design.
Cowls and hats are great almost-last-minute gifts.
This beauty, by Julia Decker, combines a lot of my favorite knitting.
You should get your pattern directly from Julia on her Ravelry page. Our kit is yarn only.
To quote Julia:
Dream Lake is located in Rocky Mountain National Park in the state of Colorado. The peaceful beauty of a snowy day at the lake inspired this cowl, a soft comfortable warm luxury for cold days.
This cowl incorporates fun textures, some simple lace and even a little brioche to create this beautiful alpine scene. Some familiarity with brioche and brioche decreases is recommended!
Yarn and Colorways
We have put together kits that will allow you to knit this. What Julia suggests are fingering weight yarns, four colors plus a main color but each needing only about 87 yards each.
Note that we did not use the same yarns or colors as the original. You can see our kit offerings in the inset photo on the top picture and again below it.
Each kit as set up here will include one Party of Five. This is a set of mini-skeins, each dyed in Tough Love Sock, a 3-ply 80% superwash merino/ 20% mylon. Each of these five skeins has 105 yards so you have a totla of 525 yards for each set.
Party of Five set "Whisper": includes sapphire, bluebell, lupine, iris, and empress, all almost-solid subtle tonalities of purples and blues.
As personally I much prefer the look of the cowl with a soft neutral in between the colors, we are adding to this kit. So even though the Party of Five set has enough yarn for you to make the entire cowl just using that, we are adding a skein of Tosh Merino Light as you see here.
This contrast skein of Tosh Merino Light (100% merino/ 420 yards) is in the colorway called Good Silence. This will give you a cream with dots and speckles of varying tones of purple and violet. (Some of the skeins have more speckles than others.)
if you prefer just the Party of Five, there is that choice via the drop-down menu above.
So unless you decide differently (via the "Kit" drop-down menu above) , this kit will include the Whisper set of Party of Five plus a Tosh Merino Light skein of Good Silence.
More than enough for a stunning piece.
