Molten Metal Cowl
Meet the Molten Metal Cowl, which you can knit with just 1 skein of Lhasa Wilderness, shown here in the Mango Salsa colorway from Bijou Basin Ranch’s indie dyer series.
It uses two different stitch patterns (which are both written and charted) to create a fun-to-knit cowl you can knit using both variegated and semi-solid hand-dyed colorways.
I love working with this soft, lustrous yarn, especially since I know that the finished project will look great for years to come - the strength of the bamboo is the perfect complement to the yak fiber, and many of my previous projects in this yarn have yet to pill (even mittens!). Another bonus of working with this particular yarn is that it yields beautiful stitch definition.
