I am pleased to say that I have a finished hand knit to show you today. It’s actually been finished for a few weeks but I didn’t get it blocked until yesterday after work. Funny how the demand for something to blog about pushed me to the finish line on this one.
Anyway. It’s a cowl knit with a gradient kit I bought from Kim at Fiber Revival a few years back.
I followed the pattern called Gradient Cowl Recipe and I just knit those rows until I ran out of each color.
This yarn is so yummy! It’s part cashmere and merino, I think. I don’t have the exact information and I’m not sure it’s available anymore but like all of Kim’s yarns the colors are gorgeous.
It’s maybe a little . . . taller (is that the right word for a cowl?) than it needs to be but it’s so soft and I think it will scrunch up beautifully around the neck, like a hug from me for someone I love.
And isn’t that exactly what a hand knit should be?
