mmmm, tweedy yarn

Pattern: Burberry Inspired Cowl
Yarn: Baby Alpaca Grande by Plymouth – 1.5 skeins
Needles: US 10
Mods: 3 needle bindoff. I was worried I wouldn’t get good tension with this yarn doing Kitchener. (It’s so soft and fluffy, I was afraid it would pull apart.)

Worst thing about this knit was the weather, 90 degrees and 90% humidity are not the right time to be working with a bulky alpaca yarn. Under the right atmospheric conditions, this cowl could easily be knit up in a day. I give it “two tumbs up and a snap” in the ‘Frantic “OMG, Where Is The Coffee?” Last Minute Gift’ holiday knitting category.
