One of my very favorite scarf yarns has now morphed itself into my favorite cowl yarn. This simple project just took a few hours to knit up and I have been wearing it everywhere and with everything. Its warm, fun, and super colorful. ALP Oriental from Feza is one big ball: 165 yards of mixed content all hand tied yarn. The ALP series changes color and or texture as you knit with segments of different yarn and because it is hand tied it gives you that rag effect making a simple pattern look more complex.
We have over 25 different color balls to choose from and they are all hand tied “just for you” meaning none of them are alike which makes each cowl unique to its maker You can check out the free pattern by clicking here. The cowl is knit entirely in the round on size 35-29″ needles. That’s right, the gigantic needles! Some of the fringe is already cut and comes with your ball you have to make some fringe as you go as well but it goes pretty quickly. I also love how the fringe is applied to the top on one side and to the bottom of the cowl on the other making it asymmetrical. I highly recommend this project, it will be your new favorite accessory! -B
