I'm so proud of this little project. It's made from my very first skein of handspun yarn.
The pattern is Cherry Garcia by Adrian Bizilia and it's free through ravelry. The second picture shows the color better, but the first shows the cable pattern. I only had enough yarn to make it two cables tall instead of three, but the yarn is so bulky it is the right height anyway.
I'm guessing my handsupn was only about 80 yards because some of it was so bulky. Here is what it looked like in the skein.
It's very hard to take pictures of yourself without making weird faces...
Also, with my face shape, a cowl might not be the most flattering winter garment... it sort of gives me that "fatface" look since it doesn't hug my neck. Fatface aside, I love this project and will be wearing a lot this winter as the temps dip lower.
