I’m a farmer groupie. I don’t have my own farm, but I work on one and daydream about my some-day farm. That is how the Straw Cowl came about. Its long zigs and zags and lovely warm yellow were inspired by a barn full to the brim of straw on a crisp autumn day.
The pattern is written for two sizes: long or short. The longer version can be worn double wrapped or hanging loosely.
The stitch in this fabric takes some time to knit, but the results are well worth it for a densely knit fabric with a lovely drape and feel.
