Gulf of Maine - Light is the DK-weight version of my original Gulf of Maine cowl! The original was knit in a yarn that has been discontinued, so I was excited to revamp the pattern in a different yarn and also one that was a bit lighter-weight and could be worn in multiple seasons and different climates too. 
It features 3 different colors of Berroco’s Summer Silk yarn, a silk/cotton/nylon blend (although any DK-weight yarn will work!) and this time around I included instructions for 2 different sizes - a shorter (taller) version and a long, infinity-style version.
This is a perfect relaxing knitting project when you just want to unwind at the end of the day and enjoy some simple knitting.
I also have a limited number of kits available on my website for purchase! It includes all of the yarn you need, a hard copy of the pattern and a cute little knitting notebook! Click here for kit details.
