Abstract Leaves Cowl Reveal


Finally some pictures of this great cowl. Abstract Leaves Cowl in Shepherd Sock Red Rover. (Yes, I know it’s usual to have a human model, but hey, we gotta use what’s at hand.)



Notice the lovely stitch definition and the exquisite shaping in the 2nd pic achieved by changing down to smaller needles. I'm very impressed with the effectiveness of that technique.

Added to that the subtle colour changes in the Shepherd Sock and the softness of the yarn and you have a cowl that people keep trying to steal from you.



Seriously. They ask to try it on and then they try to leave the house.

Be vigilant.

I love the colour and fully understand why anyone would want to try it on and then try to leave... :)
