I can hardly believe it has been 6 months ago since I left Portland and also Close Knit. I miss being at the yarn shop and I miss seeing what everybody is working on.
Let's welcome Nancy Ricci back to Close Knit, even if it is just online! For more Nancy, please hop on over to her blog Getting Purly With It.
So you can imagine that I am so very happy that Sally has given me the opportunity to write for the Close Knit blog every once in a while.
This way, I can still feel connected with you all, and for that I am very thankful!
Today I would like to share a sweet little pattern called Miss Violet. As you can see in the picture, it is an elegant and light cowl made out of one ball of Rowan Kidsilk Aura.
This piece is knitted flat and then later seamed with the mattress stitch. Needle size US10 is used and that of course makes for a quick project!
A variation of the feather and fan stitch pattern is applied, and the soft and gentle curves of this famous lace pattern never fail to enchant.
I have made this cowl in many different colors, and have enjoyed wearing them over and over again. The soft mohair is very light and provides for gentle warmth!
Also, this is just the perfect gift project. Perhaps a loved one would be happy to receive this sweet accessory for Christmas?

This elegant cowl is named after a graceful cat named Violet.
She is so very lady like, walks around with dignity and is soft and fuzzy, you just want to pet her all day. That is, if she lets you...
I hope you will enjoy knitting Miss Violet!
