About The Design:
The Old Shell stitch pattern, worked in more than one color, highlights the undulating nature of the stitch pattern, reminiscent of waves upon the shore, or the lines on a scallop shell.

This pattern gives several options - DK and Chunky weight neck and shoulder cowls.

Knit in Kraemer Yarns lovely, new incarnation of their soft Alpaca Handknitting Yarn, which is now blended with 30% merino, so there’s still plenty of alpaca drape and softness, but now has better body.

Both the alpaca and merino fiber come from US sources and are spun in Pennsylvania, giving us a beautiful, natural fiber yarn, with a smaller carbon footprint than imported yarns, and at a reasonable price.

These cowls will add soft, warm accessories to your wardrobe, as well as make ideal, last-minute gifts.
