Fall may not quite yet be upon us, but this Pretty In Cream cowl will be sure to be your go to on cooler summer nights and as the autumn chill starts to creep into still sun filled days as the leaves turn to gold, russet and brown. Fall is my favourite time of year; I love all the seasons but something about the fall makes me feel like star eyed girl in a romance novel. And if you’re going to be that girl, you might as well feel amazing with this soft, sweet cowl around your neck.

The Pretty In Cream Cowl works up easily using a repeating pattern of single crochets and the cluster stitch. The cluster stitch looks elegant and adds some sophistication to any piece, and is actually one of my favourite stitches. Simple and smooth, projects with this stitch tend to turn out stunningly beautiful in my experience.

Using Sugarbush Bliss yarn, a DK weight yarn using merino wool, this will cowl is soft and warm, but light enough that it will not overheat you. I’m always eager to try different yarns and blends, but I have to say Sugarbush is quickly turning into a favourite for me. I have yet to meet a yarn from this company that I did not like.
