Rivington Cowl


A few months ago the good people at Knitspot offered to send me some of their Bare Naked Wools yarn to try. Since I am a huge admirer of  Anne Hanson's work and know that everything she does is done with class and integrity, I didn't hesitate to say yes. The yarn just had to be wonderful. When it arrived it was even better than I'd expected. The Breakfast Blend Fingering that they sent is a lovely blend of merino & alpaca with just a touch of nylon for strength.


Rivington uses two colors - in this case Oatmeal and Earl Grey - and comes in three sizes. The sample that I've shown here is the medium size. The Medium fits around Sofie's broad shoulders, worn caplet style, nicely.


Or it can be double wrapped around the neck, for extra snuggly warmth.


The body of Rivington is worked in the round, in a two color stripe, while the solid colored edging is knit onto the lower edge at the end.
