For Christmas last year I knitted my two daughters and their cousin each a cowl in "Faerytale" from "Du Store Alpakka", a very light and fluffy yarn in 100% alpaca. I decided I wanted one for myself too but wanted to try something new for the pattern. Coincidentally the pirl bee published a pattern for a herringbone cowl, a technique that was new to me.
Pattern: Big herringbone cowl from the Purl Bee
Yarn: Faerytale from Du Store Alpakka
Flowers: left over faerytale in this pattern from Drops Garnstudio
Comments: Although this yarn is really nice and soft, and will keep you warm, it tends to leave a trail on all your clothes, so choose your project with care. Now I don't only have to move dog-hair from my jacket, but alpaca-hair too!
