Finished Object: Summer Chevron Cowl

Originally published on September 11, 2015

This was a super fun cowl that — appropriately named — took me all summer long to finish!

In actuality, the reason I named it the Summer Chevron Cowl is that while it’s long enough to wrap around your neck twice, and has enough alpaca in the mix to keep you warm, the yarn is balanced with both linen and bamboo, which keep it breathable and not-too-hot on those summer evenings.

For this pattern, I wound up equal amounts of all 3 colors, as they are distributed evenly throughout the pattern.

The pattern is free and can be found right here.  Try it out in your own tri-color combo!
