Continuing this week’s theme of incredibly quick projects for those who are in a time crunch to complete all of their Christmas gifts…I present to you the Plume Scarf by Prism! I’ll admit that I was a bit skeptical about it when I first saw Leslie pull it out of her bag, but all of my skepticism vanished as soon as I touched it. I couldn’t believe how soft it was! And talk about easy! The entire cowl is knit in the round, alternating garter rows with stockinette.
Leslie used two skeins of Prism’s Plume for the edges and one skein of Cascade 128 Superwash Merino held double for the center section. While she didn’t have enough left over to make another cowl, she did mention that you could easily get two cowls out of three hanks. So why not keep one for yourself and one as a gift? The combination of the Plume with the merino yarn makes this cowl so irresistibly soft that you’ll never want to take if off your neck. And as this cowl uses such chunky yarn, you’ll be able to knit this up in no time. So stop by the shop today and feel it for yourself! -Michael
