Aramingo by designer Corrina Ferguson is a beautiful solid piece bandana type cowl. This project begins like a flat triangular shawl worked back and forth in rows, with increases on each side of the center stitch and inside each selvedge. The stitches of the triangle are then joined for working in the round, and continue with increases on each side of the center stitch to extend the front point shaping.
The delicate lace pattern adds intricacy and texture to the finished garment. This project uses just one skein of Clara, a light and lofty sport-weight yarn with a hefty 385 yards per skein. The 100% superwash merino fiber takes dye beautifully (in addition to being beautifully easy to care for). Machine wash or hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
