this time, i used a mill-spun yarn that i dyed using my own (patent-pending) method. the photos don't do justice to the richness of this colorway that incorporates the glow of burnished copper and brass. i call this combo antiquity.
this project exceeded all expectations. the aim was to showcase the beautiful yarn, so i stuck to simple stitches (mostly garter stitch and twisted rib stitch) and added some coconut shell buttons that resemble tiny belt buckles.
it can be worn cuffed...
or unbuttoned for a deeper cowl to ward of the worst of winter days.
in my ongoing commitment to minimizing waste, i used up all of the 8 ounces (roughly 225 grams) in this dye lot. well, almost all of it.
the peacock cowl is meant for my mom, but this one... this baby is all mine!
