Sierra Mountain Cowl-Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool

The Sierra Mountain Cowl by¬†Grace Akhrem uses the fair isle technique to create this fun geometric chevron pattern. Two different shades of Elsebeth Lavold’s Silky Wool are blended to create a gradient effect with the main color and then knitters will add two additional colors for the bright accents. Silky Wool is a classic soft silk, wool, and nylon blend with a nubby almost tweed texture which gives the finished cowl a rustic finish. This dk weight yarn is held double on a large needle for a much quicker knit.
