First F.O. Of The Year

Somehow it seems only fitting that my first Finished Object of the new year is a design from Jean Moss' new book, Sweet Shawlettes.  It worked up quickly and I'm very happy with the results.  I'll have to get my daughter to model it later on.  For now, here's what it looks like while laying flat.


Pattern:  The Penumbra Cowl by Jean Moss
From:  Sweet Shawlettes, page 38

Needles: 3.75 mm / US #5
(went down a needle size to get gauge)

Yarn:  Rowan Wool Cotton
50% merino woo, 50% cotton
Colors:  Antique (white) #900 - 2 balls
Inky (black) #908 - 2 balls

Notes:  The Penumbra Cowl is done in the shadow knitting technique, also known as illusion knitting.  If you look at the photo, above, you can see a hint of the zigzag pattern.  However, if you look at it from the side the pattern pops!

Don't forget to enter the giveaway of Jean's book.  Details can be found here.
