Arequipa Aventura Cowl

Arequipa Aventrura

Fall is just around the corner and I’ve started gearing up by knitting this tuck stitch cowl from Plymouth Yarn.  Something about this baby alpaca and merino wool blend bouclé  just spoke to me.  Bouclé is made from a length of loops that can range from small to circles to larger curls with at least two strands combined.  One strand is the anchor while the other strand is plied forming loose loops.  When you knit bouclé it creates more of a solid fabric.

This cowl knit out of one hank of Worsted Merino Superwash and one hank of Arequipa Aventura from Plymouth yarn is all about texture.  You begin by knitting the grey section first using a tuck stitch 4 row repeat.  This section is knit flat and then sewn together.  Then you add the bouclé by picking up the stitches along one edge with a larger needle and knitting in the round.  L & B Yarn Co. is also offering this class in August, just click here to find out more!
