Yarn Along



I have finished my Elegant Cotswold Cowl, I decided on this name as I wanted it to have an almost historical flavour to it of  Elizabethan times. It is a delicate cowl to be worn with a jacket or a simple shirt, to add beauty to what you are wearing. It fits snugly around the neck and what fun I had knitting it. I am usually designing patterns of animals but I have started also thinking about clothing, incorporating wonderful design elements… I am busy charting the pattern now and will make it available on Ravelry as soon as it is ready. My beautiful daughter Jenna was kind enough to model it for these photos…

I am so looking forward to visiting your links via Ginny’s Yarn Along

Hope you are having an inspired day:)

    I’m not a big fan of cowls, but that is *gorgeous!* It definitely has a historic flair. Though it also looks like the petals of a flower unfurling. Great job, Linda! (:

    A lovely cowl. When I first saw it, I thought it was a vase. How funny, eh? Looks beautiful on your girl. Mr. Darcy would doubtless have been won over by it.
