Abstract Leaves Cowl

Some time ago, I offered to test knit a cowl for a designer I met on Ravelry. The lovely Abstract Leaves Cowl.

It took a while to get started given the green swamp I was in for a while, but I was delighted to get started on it last week.

I'm using Lorna's Laces Shepherd's Sock Red Rover which I purchased from here. I couldn't resist some other colours while I was at it (had to justify the postage of course) which is one reason that the credit card is taking a little rest* from business right now.

Swatch of leaf pattern, 2 repeats.

Swatch while blocking - so smooth!

See how the leaves are falling left and right in a vertical sequence? S'lovely.

I'm on the final repeat of the cowl now and am even more impressed with the design. Delicate, intricate but straightforward to manage. As always tho', the knitting is faster than the camera work, so patience my pretties. Watch this space.

*(Shhhhh! Go back to sleep! It was the nightingale and not the lark!)

Ooooh, I likes it. The pattern is really kewl. I would love to try it as a part of a hat I am thinking of making. Hmmmm? Off to Ravelry then.
