Cumulo-Mirasol Ushya

Cumulo by L & B Yarn Co. is a fast crochet cowl using Mirasol Ushya. The bubble stitch used to create the large cloud like puffs are simple to make. Combining a large hook (size s) and bulky weight yarn the bubbles are made by elongating yarn overs into the same stitch multiple times. The cowl sits tall up around your face and neck keeping you nice and cosy. Ushya by Mirasol is a bulky merino with a touch of nylon. This yarn is absolutely gorgeous, the ultra soft chain knit construction provides even more unique texture for this finished cowl. L & B Yarn Co. designed the cowl to incorporate colorblocking a huge trend in both fashion and design. Color blocking simply means that you pair two or three totally different colors together to make a bold statement.

I love fringe but I don’t necessarily like adding fringe at the end of the project. The finishing of this shawl is so much fun! When you finish knitting you unravel the fringe without having to cut dozens upon dozens of pieces and then attaching.

When you unravel the fringe it is wrinkled from being knitted. We machine washed the shawl by itself on the gentle cycle in cold water and when I pulled the piece out the fringe had twisted on itself!! What an awesome surprise. This just added more wow to the finished piece. To take a look at the pattern just click here.
