l i m e s t o n e cowl

A few weeks ago, I went on a field trip to Purl NYC to get some Cascade Magnum yarn. They had a whole bunch of pretty Manos del Uruguay colorways out including a dayglow yellow color called Highighter. It really reminds me of the color of mountain dew in the sunlight. I bought 2 skeins, The Highlighter and Foil- a light grey with a touch of lavender. They looked wonderful together, and it didn't take long to develop a cool stitch pattern that showed off the contrast.

This one turned out kind of nicely and had cool horizontal stripes on one side and a kind of moss stitch on the other.

It turned into a very nice cowl. Even though the Maxima is wool, it is very soft against the skin. I will be wearing this one all summer in spite of the heat and then all winter.

If you like this cowl and want to make one, You can get the pattern on ravelry or Buy it here!
