A Trio of Cowls

DSC_0102

If you're looking for a stash busting project, an easy pattern to try cables for the first time, a little something for that luxurious yarn that you only have one or two skeins of, a lovely gift for a friend or just a quick fun knit, my new eBook, A Trio of Cowls has something for you. 

  Trio of Cowls Cover
This eBook includes three cabled cowls, each with it's own personality. Looking for a name for each of the cowls, I asked my daughters for names of things that come in groups of three. Science-minded Izzy immediately offered the three bones of the ear; Incus, Stapes & Malleus.

Green Cowl 1
  The largest of the three, Incus uses a soft yarn and open cable pattern for a very slouchy effect.
