I bought some gorgeous Malabrigo yarn in Appleton at Iris Fine Yarns and had originally planned on using it to make a hat, but the more I thought about it, the more I worried that the hat would be too bulky. So after seeing photos online of some of the beautiful cowls everyone has been knitting lately, I decided to go that route instead.
The pattern is the Dolores Park Cowl by Parikha Mehta, which I found via Ravelry. I used two skeins of Malabrigo Aquarella on size 11 needles.
Of course now we are off to Oklahoma City where it is 98 degrees, so the cowl may not see the light of day for some time! Oh well, I love it anyway!
