Stacked Eyelet Cowl

Everyone had so many good things to say about cowls that I decided to go ahead and try another one. You all sold me on the idea of the weather here being perfect for a cowl.

This time I used a lighter weight yarn and tried to knit so that the cowl fit a little closer to my neck. I like the overall results. I like the lighter weight and the yarn is nice and soft. I'll give the whole cowl concept a really good try out once the weather cools down, but I do like knitting them. Seems like you could make one as fancy or as plain as you like and they only only use up a small amount of yarn and they are quick to knit too.

It was my first time knitting with yarn from The Plucky Knitter; but how can anything with cashmere be bad? The yarn was nice to knit with and I love the colors. I have another skein of this color in a super wash sock yarn that I'm looking forward to knitting now too.
