I love the 3 Color Cashmere Cowl by Joji Locatelli. L & B Yarn Co. decided to knit ours up in a lightweight spring yarn, Hempathy by Elsebeth Lavold. The yarn is a hemp, cotton, and modal blend and is going to be fabulous with my spring wardrobe. L & B has 12 colors available to choose from in the original solid and 8 colors available in the new variegated Hempathy Prints.
This knit flew by, it was one of those projects that I didn’t want to end. The pattern changes periodically making you want to keep knitting so you can see how the next pattern looks in the yarn. I used 5 balls of Hempathy (2 pale silver, 2 bleached white, and 1 vibrant lemon) I literally used up every inch of the vibrant lemon but I had enough to finish that section.
Blocking this project went very well, the yarn is machine washable and I washed it on gentle cycle and then laid flat to dry. This yarn knitted up nicely and even more exciting is it washed beautifully. If you haven’t tried this pattern yet check it out by clicking here. You won’t be sorry that you did!!

The Crochet Infinity Cowl a design from Queensland is great throw on with anything and go project! You can really have fun mixing the two different colorways of Queensland Cairns a bright and fun 60% cotton and 40% acrylic.
The pattern is great for beginners who already know how to chain and single crochet. If you are a veteran crocheter you will enjoy how the colors blend together to make a true work of art.
L & B crocheted ours out of color number 1 and color number 3, it only takes one ball of each.
