Sometimes you don’t NEED yarn but you HAVE to have it, and that was the case with this particular skein, dyed by Megan Ingman of Lichen and Lace, the former owner of Lettuce Knit in Toronto (one of my all-time favorite yarn stores). The pattern name derives from another word for eggplant or aubergine used in South Africa and South Asia.

Be warned: you might play yarn chicken towards the end, this cowl uses the entire skein!
