Kogarashi Cowl

Cowl as worn

Today we have an FO from before I started my financial yarn fast (so it doesn’t count towards those 5 FOs). Another Fern Lace Cowl in the books (ravelry link). This will make 3 of these cowls – the second was my Mom’s Birthday Cowl and the first was an FO I finished during my time off the blogosphere… and I still haven’t gotten around to photographing it for Ravelry.

This time the cowl is once again for me. The yarn is Noro Kogarashi in colorway #7. I’ve had this in my stash for a very long time, and sadly this yarn has been discontinued since… I actually bought this while I was still in grad school more than 4 years ago now. It’s a beautiful yarn – a silk and wool blend, and of course I’m always a sucker for Noro’s colorways.

The cowl itself came out a bit big – but as long as I’m careful to arrange it it’s cute and slouchy. And oh, the colors…

(side note – not sure why the photos look over-sharpened… still figuring my way out in photoshop).
