Well, the fall colours are really starting to show here and so today I have ready for you a darling piece, this stunning Autumn Rich Cowl. This yarn is part of the Mineville Wool Project and I’ve no idea if you can get ahold of it. Sorry! I really, truly am. I bought this while in Toronto over the summer but I did not realize that even Google could not help me glean much about this yarn. However, I’d try Etsy as they seem to have a lot of colours available. However, don’t be discouraged as the pattern can be used for any worsted yarn that is variegated with fall tones you like. Or really, any colours that appeal to you! My motto in crochet is never limit yourself. Usually it’s served me well 😉
Fall is my favourite time of year; there is just something peaceful beautiful about the light and I love the smell of the leaves as well as their stunning array of reds, golds and orange. And this yarn is autumn on fire, rich and bright and just stunning. I used a simple pattern to create this piece, and it turned out beautifully. Using single and double crochets, this cowl works up quickly and looks chic. I am so ready to wear it now that the leaves are both gold and red, and falling.
