OMGoodness. Check this out.
I think I've found my new favorite accessory.
It's so faaabulous that I finished it in two evenings. I stayed up till 3 am finishing it up last night.
Ok. Enough gazing. The details.
This lovely yarn is Manos Del Uruguay Maxima, in colorway Agua. It's a lovely singly ply 100% merino wool that's beautifully hand-dyed. I had one skein leftover after making a baby blanket for a friend. I just knew it would be great in this pattern: A Very Braidy Cowl by Maryse Roudier.
It's a simple design, just a set of two humongous cables, which I knit flat and then seamed together.
