Halloween brings us our Holiday Countdown Project #2, the Cloud Fair Isle Cowl, designed by Shannon Dunbabin. This cowl is pictured knit in Cascade Cloud, an amazingly soft, aran-weight chainette blend of baby alpaca and merino. Joy knit this beautiful sample while vacationing last week--she says it was easy enough for someone new to fair isle knitting and finished very quickly. She knit this beauty in less than 4 hours total knitting time...that easily makes it a weekend project, for sure. Her cowl, which is on display in the shop, used about 1-1/2 skeins of the main color and 1/2 skein of contrast. She pointed out that buying one extra skein gives you enough yarn for two cowls. Between Oct. 31 and Nov. 6, the yarn for this project, Cascade Cloud or other yarn of your choice, is 10% off and the pattern is our gift to you, with project yarn purchase.
Remember to submit photos of each of your finished Holiday Countdown Projects, knit in yarn purchased at Dartmouth Yarns, to be entered in the drawing for a $50 Dartmouth Yarns shopping spree!
