Join me at Yarnability on Sunday, October 29 at 1pm-3pm to knit the Fiammata Cowl by Heather Zoppetti of Stitch Sprouts. This lovely cowl uses only 1 skein of Yellowstone (DK weight wool/silk blend) in a beautiful array of colors. This yarn offers a nice sheen and lovely drape.
While the pattern on this cowl appears complicated, it isn’t. Heather has created a clever use of slipped stitches to create this lovely texture.
This is a quick project that results in a gorgeous textured cowl. Have you started your holiday knitting yet??

Needles: Us Size 7 (straight or 24″ circular)
