Molten Metal Cowl

I'm so excited that fall is just around the corner - it's my favorite season, so I wanted to put out a new pattern to celebrate the arrival of September. Rather than my usual Ravelry release, however, I have partnered up with the folks at Bijou Basin Ranch to offer not just the pattern PDF for sale, but a discounted project kit so that you can get a skein of the luxurious Lhasa Wilderness yarn AND the pattern, too!


The Pattern

Meet the Molten Metal Cowl, which you can knit with just 1 skein of Lhasa Wilderness, shown here in the Mango Salsa colorway from Bijou Basin Ranch's indie dyer series.

It uses two different stitch patterns (which are both written and charted) to create a fun-to-knit cowl you can knit using both variegated and semi-solid hand-dyed colorways.

I love working with this soft, lustrous yarn, especially since I know that the finished project will look great for years to come - the strength of the bamboo is the perfect complement to the yak fiber, and many of my previous projects in this yarn have yet to pill (even mittens!). Another bonus of working with this particular yarn is that it yields beautiful stitch definition.

Ready to KAL?

You can purchase discounted project kits for the Molten Metal Cowl here, or individual PDF downloads of the pattern here. If you'll be at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival this weekend, you can purchase your kit there, too!

Be sure to share your project with us in the KAL thread in BBR's Ravelry group now through October 31, 2016 (Update: there are two $25 gift certifications to up for grabs!), and if you happen to be on instagram, you can use the #bijoubasinranch and #moltenmetalKAL hashtags for your photos!
