New Pattern: Eyelet of the Tiger Cowl

I can finally share this design that I've recently finished for Bijou Basin Ranch: presenting the Eyelet of the Tiger lace cowl, which is knit with 1 skein of Himalayan Summit. I was really excited to knit with this new yarn base, a 50/50 blend of Tibetan Yak and Superfine Merino that came out this fall. Designing for a variegated yarn is always a bit of a challenge, but I was really drawn to this colorway  from ModeKnit Yarns called Old Fashion Villain.

Working with this yarn was so enjoyable - and even though it's super soft, it held up to multiple frogging sessions. And check out this stitch definition:

You really can't ask for anything else in a yarn, and I'm itching to work with it once more. I bet cables and textured stitches also knit up great!

You can buy project kits here, or get an individual copy of the pattern here - or, add it to your Ravelry queue. I can't wait to see this knit up in other colors of Himalayan Summit, be sure to tag me on Instagram and use the #bijoubasinranch hashtag if you share your project!
