Mille Colori Big Cowl

cowl 2 by you.

i made a cowl for the store. it's a pretty big cowl, i wasn't sure if it was too big, but figured i'd just plough through and see what happened since it's for the store. i used 1 ball of Lang Mille Colori Big and 6mm/24" circular needles. i chose the muted colourway to go with the tuxedo coat in magnum for the front window. it looks really beautiful, i'll have to photograph it on a more neutal coloured sweater so it won't be dominated.

Mille Colori Big Cowl
shown in size large, which is a drapey, slightly oversized cowl. i haven't made it yet in a smaller size so i don't know how much taller it will be.  if you want something that will stay closer to your body but still be a cowl try the small size (and tell me how it goes). If you want a full on neck warmer that stays close to your body for blizzard conditions you should probably cast on 80 sts and 5.5mm needles.

Hello again! I am the American gal who walked 3 miles (felt like10)from my hotel to your shop! I bought this yarn in the color 0024 and made a slightly different looking cowl. I will attempt to upload a picture to your web site. I also bought some of the Mission Falls 1324 wool for a hat. It is a great yarn also. Stay warm this winter!!
