Runaround Pond is a quiet, peaceful pond in Durham, Maine, not too far from my home. The beautiful, bright green colorway of this Bertha Sport yarn reminded me of all of the shades of green you see at this pond, from the lilypads to the tall grasses.
This yarn is a wool/cashmere/nylon blend and is beautiful to knit with!

“Runaround Pond” cowl is knit in the round and features an easy eyelet rib stitch pattern.
