Isle of You
‘Fair Isle Friday’ postings on Instagram and a resolution to add color work to my knitting (and some stash sorting) led me to come up with this cowl pattern. The softness of the worsted merino is multiplied by the squishy-ness of the stranding.
A simple Fair Isle Heart motif is repeated, in graduated neutrals to a pop of color, in this sweet & soft cowl.
